ARGYLE manager Derek Adams was pleased to record a clean sheet in his side’s goalless draw against a Yeovil Town side whose performance defied their league position.
The Pilgrims notched up a second consecutive draw away from home with a stalemate at Huish Park, having to weather an early storm from a very organised and energetic home side.
“A very good game – two good sides,” said Adams. “A draw, I think, was fair.
“Credit to Yeovil: I thought they started the game very well, and we knew that. We’d seen them play a number of times and they were on the front foot. They’re fighting for their lives and running forward, and we’re trying to get three points as well. A very good side. Good energy, good work rate, and tonight we had to match that.
“I think it was Yeovil who had the first half, definitely, and we had the second half.”
Argyle did indeed come into the game much more after the break, going close to scoring on a number of occasions and looking the team more likely to take the win come the end of the game. Instead, we saw the rare sighting this season of a goalless display from the Greens, but a solid defensive display ensured they once again picked up points on the road.
“In the end,” said Adams, “I think both teams put in a good showing tonight. We just needed a break of the ball, really.
“I think Yeovil defended a wee bit deeper in the second half, and it was difficult to find any space. That’s credit to them because they’ve got themselves functioning that way.
“[It’s] nice to get a clean sheet – nice to come away from home and do that. We’ve come away from two games away from home, and Luke really hasn’t had to do anything. Could we have scored? Yes, but Yeovil are a very good side, and there’s no doubts they’ll stay in the league.”
