Luggy Likes It

PAUL Sturrock returned to Home Park, site of some of his finest footballing hours, and declared himself happy with a point.

The Scotsman, who had two spells as Argyle manager and is now the boss at Southend United, visited the Westcountry with his team in good nick having won four games in their last five.

However, he recognised how well his former side played, and will be happy to head back to Essex with the Shrimpers’ points total a tiny bit bigger than it was when they set off.

“I thought they shaded the first half,” said Luggy.

“We were sloppy for the first ten minutes of the second half but then we started to grind things down, made our substitutions, got the goal, and I thought we were going to go on and win the game.

“Argyle have some quality in their side now. They look as though they have some strength, and they try to pass the ball. They should be ok.

“This is going to be a difficult place to come. A lot of teams are going to struggle here.

“We’re happy to come here and get a result.”
