Letheren in Good Form as Pilgrims are Pipped

6 February 2018

KYLE Letheren continued his comeback from injury but was unable to prevent Argyle from falling to a Central League defeat aagainst Cheltenham Town on Tuesday.

The Pilgrims' goalkeeper made several good saves against the league leaders at the Robins' Enregy Check Training Ground in Quat Goose Lane as he makes his way back to full match fitness after a thigh tear.

However, the home side won the game 1-0 through George Lloyd's goal midway through the second half.

Argyle coach Paul Wotton said: "It was Kyle's second game back and his kicking was good, so he's getting strength back in the leg. He made some important saves later in the game, too."

Argyle's side featured new loan signing from West Ham United, Moses Makasi, with only Callum Rose and Dan Rooney of the starting 11 not having featured in Argyle's Sky Bet League One side this season. Aaron Goulty was also used as a first-half substitute for Simon Church.

"It was a very frustrating afternoon," said Paul. "We created lots of chances but we couldn't convert them, and the goal we conceded was poor, from our point of view."

Argyle (4-4-2): Kyle Letheren; Gary Miller, Callum Rose, Yann Songo, Aaron Taylor-Sinclair; Lionel Ainsworth, Dan Rooney, Moses Makasi, Joel Grant; Simon Church (Aaron Goulty), Alex Fletcher.
