Special Delivery

WHILE debates – especially inside the Argyle dressing-room – will continue as to the identity of the Pilgrims’ second scorer in their 2-1 win over Mansfield Town...

...manager John Sheridan is just happy how both goals were created. 

“Two set-plays; good delivery from Bobby [Reid],” he said. 

“After Conor Hourihane, who had the best delivery in our division last year, our delivery hasn’t been that great, but we scored against Burton from a set-play, so three goals from set-plays, and different people scoring goals, is good.

“All I say is: ‘Put [the ball] in an area where you make them defend and it gives us a good chance of scoring goals; and, in around the box, if you are trying to bend one in, just hit the target; make the ’keeper work’. 

“But, this year, when we have had good positions in and around the edge of the box, we haven’t really worked the ’keeper enough.

“Sometimes, in this league, set-plays are very important and I am pleased we got a couple today."
