Finishing, Determination and Suspension

Plymouth Argyle 0 - 2 Sunderland

Saturday's match verses Sunderland, was a game of finishing and determination. Two things that seemed lacking from Argyle's performance. The first half was end to end football, we Argyle unable to break through the Sunderland wall, and when they did, were unable to finish off any chances that came their way.

The team played was a result of the numerous bookings and suspensions that Argyle have picked up this season - with Hayles and Aljofree serving match bans for 10 yellows, Seip out for 5 yellows and now Doumbe out for the same reason. And not to forget those still out due to injuries.

But never the less the players looked rusty and worn out, and once Sunderland big money subs started coming off the bench and their goal came, the drive had been knocked out of Argyle. A second Sunderland goal came just 2 minutes later and that was the game dead and buried.

A very poor day at PAFC.
