Adams: If we sink Reds, it’ll top the lot

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND - By Paul Ed­di­son

un­beaten in Scot­land and be­ing a First Di­vi­sion club in the Scot­tish Cup Fi­nal, beat­ing the likes of Celtic and Hiber­nian.

“How­ever, if we beat Liver­pool, then it goes to the top.”

Hav­ing taken 35,000 sup­port­ers to Wem­b­ley for last sea­son’s League Two play­off fi­nal against AFC Wim­ble­don, Ar­gyle will have an­other 8,500 at An­field to cheer them on, but Adams in­sists the pres­sure is off them for this one. He said: “It’s a dif­fer­ent day be­cause there is no pres­sure on us at An­field. That will hope­fully help us, but the fans will have a ter­rific day.

“It’s a tough game. We are play­ing against a team of multi-mil­lion pound play­ers.

“We have to go and be ca­pa­ble on the ball, be­cause we are go­ing to get the ball at some point in the game.

“Off the ball we will have to close them down and be able to run be­cause that’s what Liver­pool do.” A TRIP to An­field to take on Liver­pool in the Emi­rates FA Cup will be one of the great­est days in Ply­mouth Ar­gyle his­tory, but man­ager Derek Adams in­sists it will only head his per­sonal top five if the Pil­grims win!

The League Two high-fly­ers se­cured the money-spin­ning tie af­ter Gra­ham Carey’s extratime penalty saw off New­port County in a sec­ond-round re­play.

It was the lat­est cru­cial goal for Liver­pool fan Carey, who now boasts ten for the sea­son for Ar­gyle.

He will be a key fig­ure for Adams as he sets up against the Reds, but the former Ross County boss in­sists only vic­tory will see this en­counter over­take his Scot­tish Cup run with the Stag­gies back in 2010.

He said: “This will be up there in the top five ex­pe­ri­ences of my man­age­rial ca­reer to be stood on the side­lines at An­field.

“It’s not quite the very top be­cause that was go­ing 40 games
