JOB WELL DONE IS CONSOLATION
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.
