Two games were played this weekend by West Country teams one went well but the other not so well. The big game was between Plymouth Argyle from the Championship took on Watford from the Premiership in the quarter finals of the FA Cup, just two games away from a dream game at the new Wembley Stadium. Alas it was not to be, Watford won by the only goal. Plymouth gave all they had and were unlucky not to get some reward for the pressure they kept up for most of the game. Match Report
The other game was on Saturday and concerned our very own Torquay United. They are right down at the bottom of Division Two and if they stay there they will go out of the Football League at the end of the season. After a good start to the season Torquay switched off and headed down a deep dark tunnel. It is so long since they won a game, last year some time I believe. Anyway they were playing Wycombe who are 7th and hoping to make the play offs at the end of the season. Torquay won 3 - 0. Very unexpected. It is not exactly a Supernova exploding at the end of the tunnel but some one has definitely appeared with a candle. All Torquay need to do now is win 2 and draw one more games than the two teams above them. With nine games left to play they can do it. I will keep you posted. Division Two Table. From last May
So commiserations to our near neighbours in Plymouth and keep on winning Torquay.
