Deserved More

ARGYLE manager Derek Adams feels his side deserved more from Saturday’s Sky Bet League One game against Sunderland at Home Park.

Two Aiden McGeady strikes after half time, one of which a penalty, proved the difference in the game, which saw Argyle pepper Jon McGlaughlin’s goal and a dominance exhibited in the stats, as the Pilgrims had far more efforts on goal than our visitors but, ultimately, came up short. 

 “If you look at it, 17 attempts to eight attempts is more than double,” said Derek.

“In the end, we probably feel hard done by today. I don’t think a defeat is the right score-line. Sunderland rode their luck a number of times in the match today, and they’ve come away with a score-line that they probably don’t deserve.

“We’re really disappointed, we thought we had a very good chance of winning the game. We don’t really care who comes here.

“When it was 0-0, if we score the first goal, it gives them a huge problem because they didn’t really look like they were going to score a goal. They didn’t really have anybody that was going to open us up. We dealt with them really well today.

“From that point of view, Matt Macey, did he make a save today? I don’t think so.  I think he’s played with his hands behind his back and didn’t have to do much.“
