Leicester City 0 – 1 Plymouth Argyle!

Revenge is sweet! Paul Sturrock led his team of Pilgrims to the Walkers Stadium and came away with victory and three points. Was Argyle chairman’s words designed to play mind games with Holloway, I don’t know; but if it was a deliberate ploy, it was a stroke a genius. Plymouth looked the better team all game on a poor playing surface at the Walkers even by the admission of the Leicester fans on the BBC 606 forums. Plymouth looked slick and accurate in their passing of the ball and looked a constant threat to the City goal and got their reward in the 34th minute. Lilian Nalis’ clever little flick onto Peter Halmosi allowed the Hungarian midfielder to fire off a low drive to defeat Leicester keeper Ben Alnwick. A special mention goes out to Plymouth keeper Luke McCormick who made some excellent stops including a world class save to deny Matt Fryatt in the dying moments to keep a clean sheet! This is the game we really wanted to win after the way Argyle and the Green Army have been treated by Hollowords. Now it’s time to move on and chase that elusive play-off place. Today’s win moves Argyle up to 10th in the league just two points away from a play-off spot; a win against Barnsley at Home Park on Tuesday could see us back in the play-off positions. It was good to see Argyle skipper Paul Wotton back on the bench even if he didn’t play and again Jamie Mackie was on the bench and wasn’t used. I am eager to see the former Grecian play in a (first team) Argyle shirt to see if he really is as good as billed!

As I mentioned yesterday the English cricketers did lose the first one day international against New Zealand in Wellington. As predicted England were beaten in 30 overs with six wickets remaining. New Zealand were half way to beating England before the first wicket fell. The English did get a couple of late consolation wickets but it was to no avail as the Kiwi’s wrapped up a decisive win. England need to play much better in the next one day international in Hamilton to avoid going two down. It will be an uphill battle for England to win the series should they lose the next game as they’ll need to take the final three games which on this form is unlikely! But as a patriotic Englishman I forever live in hope of sucess!
