Keith Hill spoke to iFollow ahead of his side’s visit to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday...
Argyle won promotion to League One last season, and despite a slow start, Hill expects Saturday’s opponents to climb the table.
“For me, they’re a big club,” said Hill.
“They’re a big club in League Two and a big club in League One. Their fanbase is tremendous, and it should support them in having a successful season.
“They got a positive result and performance against AFC Wimbledon at the weekend, and it will be a stern test for us. They’re finding their feet, and sometimes it’s difficult when you get promoted.
“League One is a big league now. There are so many clubs that are striving to get into the Championship, and there are a lot of clubs who are spending alot money to get into the Championship because the benefits can be huge next season in comparison to what they are now.
“Plymouth is a big club with big ambitions and they’ve found it difficult to adjust, and I can understand why, because in comparison, League One is now a million miles away from League Two.”
“It’s sometimes a difficult transition [to League One], but I think the one thing that they have in their manager and team is a fighting quality. They’ve got a quick learning mentality, and I’m sure they’ll be okay.”
Hill thinks Plymouth’s win over AFC Wimbledon, their second of the season, will see them head into Saturday’s game in high spirits.
“You want try and stop a negative momentum with respect to results. Performances are just part of the big pie, if you like, and they don’t mean anything really.
“I listen to commentators and journalists saying teams are playing well but losing games – it doesn’t matter.
“You’ve got to try and change that losing game momentum, and that’s what they’ve done at the weekend. It will give them a lot of confidence.”
