THE ultimate aim for Argyle in the Peninsula League has to be pushing for promotion to the Premier Division.

The Pilgrims travel to Wadebridge on Saturday to face a team in the bottom five but the difficult 2-1 victory at lowly Porthleven last weekend merely highlights the competitive nature of football at this level.

Head Coach Kevin Nancekivell was grateful to experienced striker Deane Smalley for securing three points in the last game and the return to fitness of some Academy options could well bolster his squad.

“We still have goalkeeper Jordan Stidson available, despite his dismissal last weekend, as his suspension doesn’t start until next week and we do have some Academy players potentially available,” said Nance.

“Deane is recovering from a long-term injury and the more game-time he can get the better, but we’re obviously dependent on what the first-team manager wants to do for the Devon derby against Exeter.

“As far as the Peninsula League, our ambition is to win promotion and we are just five points behind the leaders Mousehole. It is all about consistency of performances and with that comes consistent results.”
