Goals Will Flow

ARGYLE’S goalless draw with Yeovil Town maintains their excellent away record this season, and Derek Adams expects more goals to flow soon on their travels.

The Greens extended their run of games without defeat on the road to nine games with the draw at Huish Park, with both teams working impressively on the night to pick up more points towards their end-of-season goals. 

“I think that what there was,” said Derek, “was a lot of bodies in the way from both sides. I think at this stage in the season, you don’t want to lose the game. 

“You just see by the results in this league that it’s a difficult league. I’ve said that already this season. This is a difficult place to come to: they’ve drawn with Portsmouth with Saturday and have got a bit of belief about them.

“I think that we’ll probably feel better tonight taking a point, because I thought Yeovil were a very good side. On Saturday [against Crawley] we had a lot more of the play and probably deserved the three points there.” 

Those last two away draws have only produced one goal for the Greens, but their previous outings have shown how potent in front of goal they can be, and Adams expects his side to hit the mark more in front of goal on the road.

“There’s been chances for us,” said Derek. “Could we have won the game? We could’ve, but we haven’t worked their goalkeeper enough for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons is that Yeovil defended well. 

“We’re creating chances. I think on Saturday we didn’t create the chances, and tonight we’ve had opportunities to score goals. We’re always in the attacking third, we’re always looking like we can score goals, but we haven’t been able to do that. 

“It’s never easy coming away from home, but we’ve been able to have a very good record coming away from home. Would we have liked to have taken three points from those games? Yes we would, but everybody’s the same at this stage.”
