'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hargreaves Remains Upbeat

Manager Chris Hargreaves has admitted that although Torquay's survival hopes have long been written off by others, he has been impressed with the fight and belief of the players to at least attempt to pull off the unexpected, even when games haven't quite gone our way.

The Exeter win has given us a tiny hope again of pulling off the impossible, but the gaffer does know it's an incredible ask and highly unlikely, but the team will be going into the game this weekend against Mansfield Town trying to win all three points again.

Speaking to the Official Site Hargreaves said that he felt it was desperately important for all of the clubs in our area to be in the Football League, but ultimately if we do drop out this season then 'I'm the man to take us back up.'

'All we can do for now is make sure we win on Saturday. It would be great to still have a chance when Wycombe come here next week but if results don't go our way, we know it's out of our hands. We just have to win, look at the other results and if we're still in with a shout, it's all guns blazing against Wycombe. At this point, I'd snap your hand off for that opportunity.'

Hargreaves says what does give us a little bit of hope is teams in and around the bottom are having a wobble so if we can capitalise on that it might really give us a shout of sneaking out of the bottom spots over the coming two games, but the bottom line is we need to get six points and then just see what happens following that.

As for Mansfield, he knows it's going to be a tough, physical game but we have been working on a few things in training that might turn the game in our favour.

'We have to match Mansfield's physical presence because we know the ball will be launched into the channels and moved forward quickly. We have to cope with that and be brave like Monday. We've got a few things we're thinking about that might hurt them and our attacking players are on song.'

Hargreaves finishes by saying that Mansfield will definitely be up for the game as it is their last match on home soil this campaign and they will want to go out on a high.

The club have also recalled Daniel Sullivan from his loan spell at Bideford so he can provide a further option for the remaining games. Jayden Stockley also returns to contention following his three match ban following his sending off against Scunthorpe.
