Defender Jim Paterson has insisted Plymouth's financial woes are not affecting the team's performances on the pitch.

Argyle face a winding up order from HM Revenue and Customs after failing to pay a £700,000 tax bill, but Paterson insists the players will continue to give their all on the pitch.

He told The Herald: "When we go out on the park none of the problems off the pitch are in our heads.

"It's the same when you go training, I suppose. We have just been getting on with it.

"Sometimes things like this happen at a club and you find it brings a group of boys closer together.

"I wouldn't say it's backs to the wall yet, but it's that sort of mentality where you all dig in for each other, because everybody is in the same boat as you are."
