Room For Improvement

DESPITE kick-starting their season with a 2-1 win at Notts County, Argyle are still far from the finished article, according to manager Derek Adams.

Derek took pleasure from his new-look side’s first three-point haul of their 2016-17 Sky Bet League Two season in their third game, thanks to first-half strikes from Jake Jervis and Nauris Bulvitis.

However, the Home Park gaffer said: “We’ve got a lot of work still to do. 

“We have got a new group of players and, when you take in 14 new players to a football club, it is always going to take time. 

“We have still got to know each other; the players have only been around each other for six weeks. The best managers in the world would find that difficult; there are no people who are magicians out there who can blend a team that quickly.

“There were only four players that were signed here last season that started on the pitch. When you have a group of new players, you have got to blend them into the way that the team wants to play, and that’s not easy.
“There’s room for improvement throughout the team. It was a very good defensive display. We should have done better at the goal we gave away but, overall, the back four and the goalkeeper had to be strong.”
