Gets Goals, Sets Goals

REUBEN Reid spoke of his frustration following Argyle's 4-0 defeat to Bury - but also his determination to be part of a successful Pilgrims side.

Reid and his team-mates suffered their worst away defeat of the season at the JD Stadium, thanks to two goals from Daniel Nardiello plus one each from Danny Rose and Andrew Tutte - as well as an underwhelming Greens display, which the striker admitted after the game.

"At the moment we're not good enough collectively, at all," said a visibly disappointed Reid.

"I don't think we were too bad in the first half, but we can't come out and do what we did in the second half.

"Hopefully we won't peter out within the last three games of the season, and we'll get some positive results."

The on-loan front-man is Argyle's top scorer this season with 20 goals in all competitions, but claimed his own strike rate gives him no satisfaction if the positive results don't come from them. Reid is eager to see the side who handed him his professional debut get out of Sky Bet League 2, and is more than willing to play a part in that journey.

"I've scored goals, but I don't think it counts for anything if we're going to finish mid-table. I can't speak for the lads, but mid-table in League 2 is not what I want to be doing in my career."

When asked about the possibility of staying with Argyle beyond this season, Reuben replied: "Obviously I would love to. It's been one of my more enjoyable seasons personally, and for the team, actually.

"We've made big improvements. If you look at the few years before now, I think we've done a massive job - from keeping us in the league last year to potentially going for the playoffs this year - and it's still not over, by the way.

"I love it here. Plymouth's the team I support, and it's a team I feel like I can give something to."
