Reaction: Milton on Plymouth Argyle

27 December 2021

Assistant manager Russell Milton was disappointed his team couldn't get the goals their efforts deserved in Sunday's home defeat to Plymouth Argyle.

An even game was settled by a Plymouth side, chasing promotion to the Championship, who hit the Robins twice on the counter-attack to come out on top.

Milton was in charge of the team due to Michael Duff's absence while isolating because of COVID-19, and felt there wasn't a huge amount that separated the two teams except for the goals.

"I didn't think there was an awful lot in it. They scored at crucial times for them," he said.

"The first half was nip and tuck, not a lot in it and they scored from our corner. Second half, we were on top and they score just as we are about to make a substitution. A couple of breaks didn't quite go for us, in and around the final third.

"Plymouth took their chances really well and that's the sign of a good team, taking the chances when they arise. They did. We put in a great shift and it didn't quite fall for us."

The team return to action on Wednesday night with a visit to MK Dons. Tickets for the game are available to buy online.
