Reaction: Greaves on Plymouth Argyle

27 December 2019

Jacob Greaves felt frustrated following Cheltenham's Boxing Day defeat to Plymouth Argyle that his side couldn't take advantage of the spells in the game they dominated against the Pilgrims.

Cheltenham created a number of good openings against the Pilgrims but saw Zak Rudden's first half goal prove decisive in earning Argyle maximum points.

Greaves was named as the sponsors player of the match in front of a good crowd at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium and said afterwards that the players will pick themselves up and go again with a final match of 2019 scheduled on Sunday against Northampton Town.

"I think it's credit to us," he said. "I think we've dominated them for 80 minutes and the gaffer has come in and said they've got the biggest budget in the league so they've come to us and I think we've dominated really.

"There was a little spell in the first half when we were struggling for a little bit - and that's when they scored the goal - and after that the second half was all us really. They didn't look like scoring.

"Hopefully in the upcoming weeks if we can get that goal when we're on top then teams will be thinking to sit back even more and then that's when we go and punish teams because it's another team where they've been flat out on their feet at the end of the game. We feel like we've got a lot left in the tank to go again. It's disappointing but we'll pick our heads up and go again."
