Pilgrims rise pleases Sturrock

Plymouth Argyle boss Paul Sturrock is happy with the way his players have responded to his recent criticism of their performances. The Pilgrims are unbeaten in their last five games, having won four of them to rise up the Championship table to fifth place. Sturrock told the Evening Herald: "I think the problem was that not all the players were doing what we'd asked of them before the game. That obviously couldn't go on in the fashion it was. "Some players didn't have the tactical awareness, nor the high-tempo game that I was asking for. "They all needed to be singing from the same hymn sheet, mine. "But now I'm seeing that happen for us in the first team and also in the reserves. The players have worked hard and it's paying off for them and for the club."
