FULL-TIME: Plymouth Argyle 2 Bury 1

BURY dropped into the League Two relegation places despite a sublime debut goal for Chris Sedgwick. 

The veteran midfielder picked his spot from 25 yards to chip Argyle keeper Luke McCormick four minutes after the break to put the JD-outfit back on level terms.

Caolan Lavery had opened the scoring for the home side on 10 minutes after placing a low shot past Brian Jensen following a run past Bury centre-back William Edjenguele.

The Shakers had the better of the second half though after Sedgwick’s leveller.

But Argyle began to come back into the game after Bury captain Craig Jones picked up an injury with all three substitutions having already been used.

And there was little cover on Bury’s right flank as Lewis Alessandra broke free before pulling the ball back for Reuben Reid to tap in the winner from six yards on 78 minutes.

The defeat – Bury’s first since David Flitcroft took charge – was compounded by a late goal blitz from relegation rivals Accrington, who won to to jump above the Shakers to leave them in the drop zone.

Extra training required for our lamentable centre halves on how to do their jobs properley,analyse and scrutanise mistakes from individuals who are letting the team down week after week.

It just goes to show that it doesn't matter one jot how good players perform on the training pitch it's all about the 90 plus minutes on match days.

I doubt even Fergie could erradicate the mistakes this crop of misfits are making right now.

The 5 year plan might have to be put on hold without a huge amount of investment come January.

We need to start to look at who can be brought in. Whilst we need at least 11 new players, that won't do any good as Blackwell tried that. It needs to be a steady change.... 3 or 4 initially. But we need some class and people with determination not just quantity. It actually beggars belief that Blackwell was allowed to bring in some of this lot......
We should get our goalkeeper back from Portsmouth. That would be a start. A central defender. A midfield creative genious! and of course a centre forward to partner Nards....

What would we give now for the likes of: Schumacher, Worrall, Jones, even, John-Lewis, Skarz, Sweeney, Sodje..to name just a few.. Those players were here in 2011/12........ and we swapped, dropped and messed them all about for this bunch of losers... Sad.

It's results like this that really kill the confidence in a team against mediocre opposition.

The lads will know that they should be beating the likes of Argyle if they have got any realistic chance of climbing the table.

Too many times this season we have dropped points against the likes of Northampton,Wimbledo
n and Argyle when a win would have given us breathing space from the teams below us and pulled the teams above us closer towards the trap door as in the case of Town & Argyle.

If we are not learning as a team from past experiences the future doesn't look too bright for the club,fans and players.
