Derek Knows Better

ARGYLE manager Derek Adams succinctly and eloquently rejected a claim that the Pilgrims’ Super Sunday victory at Sky Bet League Two leaders Doncaster Rovers had been a smash and grab raid.

The Pilgrims completed a seasonal league double over Rovers thanks to Sonny Bradley’s 50th-minute header, the 1-0 win at the Keepmoat Stadium taking them to with three points of their opponents at the top of the division.

Sonny’s seventh goal of the season was a rare on-target effort from Argyle, but a suggestion during the post-match Press briefing that the Pilgrims had nicked the points from Doncaster was met with short shrift by Derek.

He said: “They weren’t good enough to break us down. You have got to be better than your opposition and they weren’t better than us today. 

“They haven’t been better than us over the two games; we have scored three goals against them and they haven’t scored any. That would tell you that Doncaster haven’t been better than us over the two games – they haven’t done enough to win them; they haven’t had enough creativity; they haven’t had enough goalscorers; they haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet against us. 

“So they haven’t been good enough against us. Easy as that.”
