"Unfortunately they cost you games"

Head Coach remains positive despite 'key errors' in Pilgrims defeat

Dermot Drummy conceded that key moments in the game cost the Reds against Plymouth Argyle last weekend.

The host led their opponents before a red card, Graham Carey's penalty and a last minute strike from Ryan Taylor meant it was the Pilgrims who took all three points, but the Head Coach was pleased with how his side performed nonetheless.

"I actually thought we did really well - barring a few individual errors which unfortunately cost you games," he admitted.

"They were very direct but if we clear our lines then I think we win the game.

"But we have to take the positives and play like that again on Friday against Cheltenham."

The game saw Dean Cox, Billy Clifford and Mark Connolly return to the side - and the Head Coach praised the impact of the former duo.

Cox scored his first goal for the club in the first half, and Clifford impressed having come back into the side.

"I think both came in and justified their selection - and they hadn't been playing for a while so to come in and do 90 minutes is a big ask.

"They showed their qualities - unfortunately after the red card I had to take Billy off and he understood that so we go again for Friday now.

The aforementioned red card was shown to James Collins after the forward picked up two bookings in the game.

Dermot admitted that being without the striker for Friday's game against the Robins was a blow, but emphasised the importance of having other options at his disposal for the Good Friday game.

"He's a big miss for us, but we have ready made replacements in Matt (Harrold) and Rhys (Murphy).

"That's where the squad becomes so important and unfortunately missing players is a part of football."
