‘Stick with us’ – Ian Foster sends clear message as Plymouth Argyle relegation fears deepen

Plymouth Argyle boss Ian Foster has urged supporters to stick with him and the squad after their defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

Plymouth Argyle had been enjoying a largely positive 2023/24 campaign back in the Championship before a recent slump in form. The unforgiving nature of the league has been clear to see, with five defeats in seven games leaving the Pilgrims only two points clear of the drop despite sitting 16th in the Championship table.

Tuesday night’s loss to 23rd placed Sheffield Wednesday further highlighted the causes for concern too. Argyle’s attack looked blunt as they were beaten 1-0 thanks to a second half goal from Djeidi Gassama.

As a result, criticism of the side and manager Foster has ramped up as fears of an immediate return to League One grow. Now though, the former England youth coach has sent a clear message to supporters.

As quoted by Plymouth Live, Foster urged Plymouth Argyle fans to stick with the group and continue their impressive backing of the side. He said:

“We need everybody to stay together. I said this when I came in, it’s going to be quite a tumultuous rollercoaster ride, we know that, that’s the Championship.

“We are going to have our ups and downs. We have had some great ups and we have had some disappointing downs, and tonight is one of those, but we ask the fans who have travelled and given us incredible support to stick with us.”

A concerning slide

There’s no hiding that it’s been a concerning run for Plymouth Argyle. With those below them picking up results, they’ve been dragged right into the relegation picture when it might have seemed they’d already gathered enough points to stay a safe distance away from the bottom three.

However, the Sheffield Wednesday loss further deepens their fears, and it means a turnaround is much-needed.

They’ve had tough games in this run, losing against Sunderland, Leeds United, West Brom and Ipswich Town while drawing with Coventry City. The blunt attacking display against Sheffield Wednesday really emphasised concerns though, so increased fears are justified.

Plymouth Argyle boss Foster and his group will be desperate to put in an improved performance to claim a result at home against fellow strugglers Blackburn Rovers this weekend. If not, the pressure will only grow further.
