Finding Solutions

RYAN Lowe is keen to use last Saturday’s frustrating 0-0 draw with Cambridge United at Home Park as a learning curve rather than a source of concern.

The Pilgrims registered 14 shots on goal in the 90 minutes, but were unable to break down Mark Bonner’s side, who stuck to their task well.

Finding those solutions in front of goal will be crucial in the Argyle push for promotion, starting with tomorrow’s massive game at Bradford City in Sky Bet League Two.

“It’s a learning curve for us and me as a manager, to try and work out how to break it down next time,” said Ryan. “We’ve been looking at loads of games and teams from the Champions League and Premier League to see how they break teams down when others sit with two banks of four.

“There’s solutions to it, you’ve just got to find a way and we’ve been working on it, so hopefully when that happens again we should have that little final piece of the jigsaw.

“I’m always pleased, obviously I’m more pleased when we’ve won a game of football because you get three points and not one but we couldn’t underestimate Cambridge United. They were the in-form team, they came with a game-plan and executed it well.”
