DANNY CADAMARTERI is delighted Town’s League I promotion push has been reinforced by the return of Jordan Rhodes and Tom Clarke from ankle injuries.
The fit-again pair were on the bench for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Bournemouth, where Cadamarteri grabbed the late equaliser which kept Town within three points of their second-placed hosts and five off leaders Brighton.
Now they’re pushing for involvement in tonight’s equally important game at Dagenham and Redbridge.
“They’re good players and it’s great to have them back,” said Cadamarteri, himself pushing for a first start after four outings as a substitute since returning for his second Town stint.
“Tom can do a job in a variety of positions and Jordan’s goal tally for the club (23 last season and 16 this time around) speaks for itself.
“People talk about rivalry between strikers, but the team spirit here is superb, and we’re all pulling in the same direction.
“Nobody minds who scores as long as we get as many points as we can.”
Cadamarteri knows it’s likely to be tough in East London as Town, aiming to make it 10 league games unbeaten, visit Dagenham for the first time.
“We talk about every match being a cup final from here on in, but it’s the same for them because they’re fighting to stay in the division,” he added.
“They’re a hard-working team and it’s a tight ground and pitch, so we have to be ready to get stuck in.
“But we’re on a good run and we know what’s needed, so it’s down to us to make it happen.”
Town’s Antony Kay starts a two-match ban while Gary Naysmith (calf) is a major doubt.
THE Football League have confirmed Plymouth have been deducted 10 points with immediate effect.
The confirmation came via a statement on the Football League’s official website after the Pilgrims issued a ’Notice of Intention’ to appoint an administrator earlier yesterday.
