Remi Matthews’ remarkable run on loan at League One Plymouth shows no signs of running out of steam, after keeping another clean sheet in the Pilgrims’ 1-0 win over Bradford.
The shot-stopper’s ninth clean sheet in 18 appearances helped push Derek Adams’ squad into the play-off positions.
“We have just got to keep on working hard,” said Adams. “We have got 11 games to go and we want to see how many points we can pick up.
“The players have shown a great willingness to win football matches.
“We have had a lot of injuries and suspensions but we have overcome that and are on a very good run.”
