‘IT was a game of two halves’ - probably the biggest cliché in the book.However, following Argyle’s 1-0 pre-season victory over Blue Square South Truro City on Tuesday night, that was exactly manager Carl Fletcher’s assessment.
“It was two different types of the games,” he said.
“In the first half, [Truro] sat in and we had to move the ball and try and make chances.
“We had to do things a little bit differently in the second-half - they came out a little bit more - but I’m pleased overall. The lads worked hard and it’s another 45 minutes under the belt.
“I thought we did well: we kept the ball; we created a few chances, although maybe we could have had a few more goals. So it was a good, decent work out for the lads.”
Whilst pleased with his team’s performance, Fletch also had a word or two to say about the hosts, who, for the sixth consecutive year, played the Pilgrims in pre-season.
He said: “We’ve got a good relationship with Hodgy [Truro manager Lee Hodges].
“Look at the state of the pitch – it’s fantastic. Lee said a few of the fans came down and helped out with it because he was a bit worried about it so it’s great team-spirit for the club and for the community.
“We know that, when we come to Truro, it’s always a tough game for us.
“I’m well aware of that and I made the players well aware. Every pre-season I’ve played here, we’ve had our work cut out.”
