Access All Areas

DESPITE knocking in four goals in an excellent victory over Yeovil Town, Derek Adams is keen to spread the praise around all areas of his Argyle side.

The Pilgrims recorded a ninth win in ten games by seeing off the Glovers 4-1 at Home Park, thanks to a brace from Jake Jervis, a Jimmy Spencer strike and a 30-yard stunner by Graham Carey.

Attacking prowess was far from the only aspect that Adams was pleased with, though. After Darren Ward converted from close range at the end of the first half, Argyle withstood some Yeovil pressure, as Darren Way's side threw bodies forward and created chances from set-pieces.

"Defensively, we looked really sound today," said Derek. "They [Yeovil] had a couple of opportunities from a set play, which they did well at because they flood the box. We obviously probably didn't defend it well enough, but in the end, we could've scored a few more goals.

"I think it's always important in a game to see it out. There were a lot of good players, even defensively as well. We were very strong in the midfield. It was a top performance from us, and I think that to pick a man of the match is very difficult today."

In the middle of the park, possession was won, maintained and monopolised by David Fox and Yann Songo'o, giving more license for the likes of Carey and Jervis to work their magic in front of goal.

"He's very composed on the ball," said Adams on Fox. "He picks - 90 per cent of the time - the right pass, and you need these types of players on the team to pick the ball. I thought himself and [Yann] Songo'o did that today. They've got a good understanding between the two of them."
