Gareth Ainsworth

"We were dominant in the first half; we set up with a specific plan which worked really well. We could’ve been two or three up.”

“Plymouth came back strongly but we defended resolutely. I’m really proud. Luke Bolton making his debut was great to see.”

“It’s exciting times here. But survival remains the first target.”

He later added:

“I thought in the first-half we were very dominant, and I was disappointed we didn’t come in at half-time with more goals because you know a team like Plymouth are going to come at you.

“They are a good side, they’ve won four on the spin, and obviously they had a shake-up at half-time because they were a lot better in the second-half.

“They went a bit more direct, put plenty more balls into our box but we defended that really well. We’ve restricted Plymouth to one shot on target which is great for us but they are a good side, and they’ll be flying up the table in the second-half of the season so that is a very good win for us.”

“We can be happy about this result but come Tuesday we have got Blackpool and it’s right back down to earth,”

“Humility is a very big word for me, I always want to look up, I never want to start looking down and thinking we’ve already achieved something.

“I always want this team to be one that looks up, respects everyone and gives it a right go, and for Blackpool I’m sure that there will be a few tired legs so there may be a few changes, but the next game is always the most important and that is Tuesday night at Blackpool.”

Derek Adams (Argyle Manager)

The usual stereotypical stuff.
