Green Days

IT is supremely ironic that, for a club that has played more Football League matches than any other in green, Argyle have not been getting the best of fortune recently.

But for a bobble here, a break there, and a caution or two fewer, the Pilgrims would arguably have come out of their difficult last six league games with more than a solitary point against league leaders Gillingham.

 “We’ve just not been getting the reward for the way we’ve played,” insisted manager Carl Fletcher.

“We’ve played four away from home in the last six games, against teams who are expected to be in the play-offs, minimum.

“We’ve had a tough run recently and we’ve not had that rub of the green.”

That was illustrated at Bradford on Tuesday, when Gary Jones’ first-half goal proved the difference between two well-matched sides.

Fletch said: “[The ball] just bobbled around; it’s fallen to the geezer; and he’s just scuffed it in the bottom corner. That didn’t happen for us. I thought we deserved something on the night.”
