Got to be winning games like that. Very frustrating as first half was almost one way traffic only for our concentration to go after half time again. Poor defending and would have been a defeat if it weren't for Mark Oxley. Fortune was running on fumes yet PB took Cox off and that hugely limited us in attack. Should have won it but Plymouth made life difficult and on another day would certainly have won if Oxley hadn't been at it.

Oxley 8 Three superb saves, completely different player to his start last season
Demetriou 6 Vulnerable and really struggled in the air.
White 8 Solid and dependable, did very well in a physical battle.
Ferdinand 5 Clearly had last week on his mind, no composure and was rash rather than calm, struggled with the physicality
Hendrie 5 Poor, sucked into the middle too often, foul throws in injury time is amateur
McGlashan 7 Pace was a real threat, lacked the options and sometimes the end product
Timlin 7 Great defensively and some brilliant tackles, let down with his passing
Leonard 7 Like Timlin, drove forwards well and gave his all but didn't always come off
Kightly 8 All our attacking threat was through him, occasionally guilty of trying to do it all himself
Cox 6 No real impact but worked hard and dropped deep
Fortune 6 A 7 until the hour mark, battled well, a 5 after, he completely switched off

Robinson 5 Wrong decisions, his pace was a threat though
McLaughlin 6 Clearly uncomfortable on the left

Desperately lacking options off the bench to mix things up.
