Bristol Rovers 0-0 Plymouth ArgyleSat 15th August 2015
Our U-18 side made it two draws from their first two games following this goalless encounter with Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.
“It was a game we might have won,” said Alan Walsh but the main positive to take from the match was that we kept a clean sheet.
“On the other hand we couldn’t put the ball in the net at the other end even though we created a number of chances.
“The lads worked hard, though, and once again I couldn’t fault them for their effort and work rate, which was fantastic. However the same traits are surfacing in most games, in that while we work hard to gain possession we give it away again cheaply and in bad areas.
“Overall, I think a draw was probably a fair result. The closest Plymouth came to scoring was in the first half when they hit the bar with a speculative effort from some 25 yards out.
“We, on the other hand had a few opportunities where the ball flew across the face of goal and we had no one able to get on the end of it. Neither goalkeeper had too many saves to make during the 90 minutes.
