Plymouth manager Schumacher: We want to make our fans proud against Chelsea

Plymouth Argyle manager Steven Schumacher has promised to make club fans proud today against FA Cup opponents Chelsea.

Five years ago, an Argyle side managed by Derek Adams held Premier League giants, Liverpool, to a goalless draw at Anfield in the third round of the cup.

Then, last season they fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat at Sheffield United.

Speaking ahead of the game Schumacher said, “Chelsea are a top, top team. They’re the European Champions and are doing well in the Premier League as well.

“We are going there as massive underdogs, but we have a game plan, we want to go there and do ourselves justice.

“We want to put in a performance to make our fans proud.”

Schumacher’s side go into the game unbeaten in their last two league games and off the back of a 3-1 away win at Doncaster Rovers.

They have scored 10 goals in their last five matches in all competitions with striker Luke Jephcott scoring in the last three consecutively.

He also told, “The lads have enjoyed the week. We came in on Tuesday nice and bright and the training has been really good.

“Everyone was pleased that we got the win against Doncaster, it was tough game in tough conditions but to get through it was great and has set us up for a good week this week.

“Everyone has been smiling, everyone has been positive and we are keen to go there and do well.”
