Bittersweet Gregg

GREGG Wylde is pleased to be back among the goals - but would rather his latest strike had come in happier circumstances.

Argyle lost 2-1 to Cambridge at Home Park on Saturday, with Gregg notching Argyle's lone strike in between the visitors' two. Cambridge took the lead through Ben Williamson in the first half in which they controlled, but Argyle came out strong for the second period, and managed to pull level through Wylde's well-taken header. 

However, it was not meant to be for the Greens as Luke Berry smashed his shot into the back of the net in injury time for the U’s to take all three points.

Wylde’s goal, set up by a clipped cross from Jake Jervis, was his third of the season, but his first since finding the net against Portsmouth back in August. He said: “I’ve had a few nips in the ear with my dad and the manager saying I just need to get back on the score sheet. [It should be that] if I’m not assisting, I’m scoring and if I’m not scoring, I’m assisting.

“I think it’s good to score but it’s disappointing we lost that goal at the end.

“Jake said at the start of the game he’s due me a goal and he said at full time it was good to see me scoring. It was a good ball, I just went to the front post and put it in. It was good.”

Gregg picked up the man of the match award thanks to his goal and performance today. The Scot has created a number of chances for the Pilgrims so far and has recorded several assists to his name but still feels he has a lot to work on to improve his game. 

“I’ve had a few shots on goal in the last few games," he said, "but I think I need to start scoring goals.

“I’ve created goals but I think there’s a lot to still be worked on going forward and mix my game up a bit as well.”
