48 Points Should Be Enough

48 Points Should Be Enough

Here we go again, another relegation dog-fight for Plymouth Argyle, our fifth in succession.

We've beaten relegation twice in the last four years; can we make it three near misses out of five?

Recent League Two history shows us that the magic points tally to reach to avoid relegation to the Conference is between 46 and 51.
Argyle survived last season by getting to 46 points, although it should be noted that a poor Macclesfield team occupied one of the relegation places having dropped from the safety of midtable at an alarming rate.

This season the bottom of League Two is closely contested with just four points separating the bottom six. Argyle currently sit just one place outside of the relegation zone, courtesy of goal difference but have worryingly played two more games than the two teams below them.

John Sheridan's team simply have to get to at least 46 points as a bare minimum, although 48 points should be the bench mark for this campaign.
If the current average of around a point per game is continued the Greens will reach 46 points by the end of the season but will that be enough? Let's aim for 48!
The 12 League Two games over the next two months will decide if Plymouth Argyle suffer a third relegation in five years.

February and March are shaping up to be huge months for the Pilgrims with 12 games to be played during those nine weeks, six games are at home and six are on the road, however, there are just two games at Home Park during February.
March will see Argyle play four games at home and three away.

The Pilgrims need to collect around 40 to 42 points by 1st April to put themselves in a great position for the last five games of the season.
With Argyle currently on 28 points a minimum of 12 points from the next 12 matches is required to hit 40 points, surely that is achievable?

40 points by April and 48 by the end of the season please!
