Plymouth Argyle's short-term survival has been secured after a winding-up petition from HM Revenue & Customs was dismissed in the High Court.
The League One club have paid off the £760,000 tax bill that led to the winding-up petition being presented.
However cash-flow remains a major issue at Home Park, with the players still awaiting their January wages.
The club, who are 18th in League One, are due to pay their next tax bill on 22 February.
Peter Ridsdale, football consultant to Plymouth's board, told BBC Spotlight: "It was good news in the sense that we've paid the petition debt and are up to date with the revenue, but that's just the first hurdle we've got over.
"Today isn't a day of celebration, today is just a sober reminder of the fact that we've still got a lot of people to pay money to."
However, further instalments of tax payments, accrued since the presentation of the petition, have kept the club in a perilous financial position, demonstrated by the
delay in paying players.
Ridsdale, who has been working as an advisor to Plymouth's board since December last year,
has said £2 million is needed
to ensure the club survives until the end of the season.
The Former Leeds and Cardiff City chairman added: "This is an attractive football club and if we can get it right by paying off the creditors and putting enough cash in to see it through to the end of the season, there's a massive upside opportunity."
