Sarcevic Hopes For Happy 'Home' Coming

Wanderers skipper looking to make amends at former club

19 October 2021

Antoni Sarcevic will relive some magic moments when he returns to Plymouth Argyle tonight.

The Wanderers’ skipper is sure of a warm welcome at Home Park where he was a former player of the year and double promotion winner.

It’s a trip Sarcevic is looking forward to after three-and-a-half happy years with the high-flying Pilgrims – who currently lead League One.

But erasing a more painful short-term memory remains the number one priority for the midfielder following the Whites’ 4-0 weekend loss to local rivals Wigan Athletic.

“It was Wigan’s day, not ours, and we look forward to Tuesday now,” said Sarcevic.

“Everyone is gutted and devastated and wished it could have been better but the beauty of football is we have Tuesday night to put things right.

“We have to make sure what we didn’t do right on Saturday we do right and get the three points.

“We all fight for each other. We are a close-knit group and we will be ready.”

Sarcevic played through the pain barrier against Wigan after nursing a knock going into the game and suffering an early blow to the affected area.

But it will take a lot to keep the captain out of a reunion with Plymouth where he made 132 appearances before returning north to join Wanderers at the start of last season.

Another promotion success on his CV with the Whites set up Wanderers’ first visit to Plymouth since 1992.

And Sarcevic is looking for another big-away day to follow up wins at Charlton, Ipswich and Lincoln as Ian Evatt’s men bid to become the first side to win at Argyle this season.

“I still follow them closely,” added the 29-year-old. “Especially with them doing well they will have the backing of the fans and I’m looking forward to seeing them all.

“I can’t wait to go down and be around it and see it all again and feel what I felt down there, although the sole focus is on winning the game.

“It’s time for us to bounce back and I think it’s a perfect opportunity. They are top of the table so it’s down to us go down there and spoilt it a bit.

“We’ve done it a few times already this season. We’re not wary of going down there.

“We’re focused on us, simply on us, and if we do everything right, as we can do, I’m sure it will be a positive result.”
