JOB WELL DONE IS CON­SO­LA­TION

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

IT WILL take a to­tal change of team char­ac­ter or a sud­den bad health epi­demic sweep­ing through the dress­ing room to pre­vent Ply­mouth climb­ing out of League Two.

There was noth­ing spec­tac­u­larly en­ter­tain­ing about their draw against Portsmouth but they looked far more pro­fes­sion­ally or­gan­ised and far stronger and ruth­less in the tackle than the team im­me­di­ately be­low them.

One anal­y­sis of the match statis­tics summed up their style. In the first half Portsmouth had 64 per cent of the pos­ses­sion and four shots on tar­get.

How­ever, not one of them called upon goal­keeper Luke McCormick to stretch him­self.

He did con­cede af­ter the break but a point was the least Ply­mouth de­served.
