Hungry For More

17 January 2016

A 3-2 win over Stevenage made it five wins from six games for the Pilgrims - yet Gregg Wylde has said that the Pilgrims should have scored more.

Gregg got himself on the scoresheet in the first 20 minutes to put Argyle 2-1 ahead, before the Pilgrims scored a third and then squandered several chances before half-time, with the second-half proving a tougher test.

"It was good to play in," said Gregg. "But in the second half we made it hard for ourselves, we were 3-1 up at half-time, I think we could have scored more but we didn't take the chances, overall it was three points and we bounced back from Tuesday night.

"We knew they would make changes at half-time. They made two changes and caused a few problems, but I think our back four dealt with it quite well, so overall we are just delighted to get that win.

"I think we had a chance with Oscar and Brunty, but I do not know where the ball has gone. We should have scored more in the first-half to kill the game off. I think at this stage of the season we need to start scoring more goals because it could come down to goal difference at the end of it.

"We started quite well. We were quite aggressive going forward, Reuben had a few chances and I had a shot from the edge of the box, it was good."

Argyle's victory over Stevenage was welcome, after a disappointing mid-week defeat to Northampton. The Pilgrims are yet to lose consecutive League 2 games.

"We all know Tuesday night was a disappointment," Gregg said. "Not just the result, but the performance as well. We put it out of our systems on Wednesday and came back and it was good to get the three points. At this time of the season we need to keep it going. Oxford play tomorrow, so we shall see how that goes."

The Pilgrims have managed to keep playing regular football this season, with Argyle's win today their 27th game of the season. Hartlepool United and Accrington Stanley have only played 22 league games.

"I think when games are cancelled it is not really beneficial, you want them on," Gregg said. "It's catch-up when your games are off. Its good that we can relax tonight and be back in on Monday morning. I think you plan ahead for games, now we can relax and look forward to the game next week.

"I think we are on more points than we were last season so we just have to keep our heads down, focus and see where it takes us at the end of the season."
