Plymouth owner James Brent has targeted a return to the npower Championship after the Pilgrims secured their League Two safety.

The 1-1 draw with Oxford was enough to keep Argyle in the Football League, following a tumultuous season during which they found themselves within days of financial oblivion and well detached at the foot of the League Two table. However, with the majority of the Pilgrims' problems now in the past, Brent is beginning to focus on an ascent up the league ladder.

He told BBC Spotlight: "There is no doubt in my mind that Plymouth Argyle should be a Championship club, not a League Two club."

He continued: "It's very much an aspiration to move forwards, back to the Championship. We've said we'll do it on a sustainable basis and we've got the Green Army to make that happen.

"For the last two games at home we've had close to 9,000 fans turn up.

"We're second only to Bradford, who charge very discounted season ticket prices, so we've got the support base to take us back to the Championship."
