With Aldershot sitting 21st and Plymouth 22nd at the start of play this was a relegation six-pointer in every sense of the word, and first-half goals from Banton, on loan from Crystal Palace, moved Argyle two points clear of the drop zone while sending the Shots into the bottom two.

A Peter Vincenti strike for the hosts was sandwiched either side of Banton's goals, and while Sheridan admitted it was hardly a vintage display from his side he knows points are all that count when you are at the wrong end of the table.

"Considering Aldershot are one of the teams around us it was a massive win for us. It was a great effort from the players," he said.

"I don't think we played great but we didn't half battle and that's what they've done for me - battled in the last four games. They are working very hard for each other.

"I don't usually pick people out. We are working hard to win games and stop goals going in and that's a big plus for me.

"He's (Banton) a threat, when he gets the ball he excites me but I don't think he gets enough of the ball. But he can be a matchwinner.

"Aldershot do put balls in the box, they're a handful and they're a decent side. I think there was one or two penalty decisions that did go our way but sometimes you need a bit of luck. I'm very pleased to get the three points.

"I'd really like us to keep the ball better but we're slowly improving. I know on our day we can beat anyone and that's what I've got to tell the players."
