No progress for the Pilgrims

Andy Munro watches Blues beat Plymouth Argyle.

This was by no means a stellar performance by the ‘new soap powder’ Blues, with Plymouth having much more possession (albeit mostly in non-threatening areas), more corners andbother such meaningless stats.

However, it was good to see Scott Hogan get his first goal of the season as he is undoubtedly a confidence player and the goal should do him the world of good.

Yet after an excellent first half in which Koji Myoshi and Keshi Andersen were excellent, Blues seemed to go off the boil as the second half progressed. Luckily John Eustace, never one to baulk at making subs rang the changes and this seemed to do the trick with a decent response.

The old dependable tried and tested Juke nodded on fir new boy Jay Stanfield to smash home a worldie, showing why he was being courted by so many clubs

Whilst Plymouth may feel unlucky not to have come away with a draw, Blues showed a mixture of both resilience and flair to max out the points. Finally, a word for the unsung George Long, who was a colossus at the back.
