    The snows gone....temperature soaring to just about 50F...time to look to the final run in....play-offs or not we must be pleased with how we have confirmed our Div1 status.....who would have thought that in December.
    Looking forward to the Charlton game....with divided family loyalties the outcome will be crucial.

    Next two games could be iffy.....Southend beat high flying Rotherham 2-0 yesterday and 5th placed Scunthorpe sack their manager after drawing at home to Rochdale....their next home game will be Argyle with possibly a new manager installed.....shades of Charlton all over again......what could possibly go wrong.

    It has been announced that Craig Brewster will be leaving the club at the end of the season when his contract runs out.
    Craig who is Assistant Manager is on sick leave at present recovering from a hip replacement that he had in January.....he will not be coming back before his contract runs out.
    It was revealed at todays press conference with the manager that Luke McCormick besides having an ankle operation also had a shoulder op (not at the same time) during his time out injured....he is starting to do training and eventually will get time playing for the reserves etc.
    Antoni Sarcevic is starting to do light training after an op.
    Ryan Edwards will be seeing his specialist in mid-april.....at present he is regaining his strength after chemo.....plus a little light training.
    Sonny Bradley will hopefully hear from his specialist this week and hopefully start light training and some ball work.
    Gary Millar is also back training.
    Simon Church is still out with a thigh problem.
    Robbert te Loeke is still out ?

    That is the end of the Argyle NHS report.

    Damning comments on the NTFC Twitter feed on Saturday even before the game started. Team selection was apparently similar to Derek Adams leaving out Sonny Bradley, Graham Carey and Reuben Lamerias.

    Sonny Bradley has revealed that his time in Derriford Hospital was because of a kidney problem....tests were done plus a biopsy to discover why there was a problem, this small op was the reason he wasn't able to play for awhile....still waiting for the final result of why there was a problem....but he is back in training and played against Southend successfully.....Sonny says he is not 100% fit yet but is working on it.
