Pilgrims told to cool it

Plymouth Argyle manager Ian Holloway blasted his players for their goal celebrations during the 1-1 FA Cup third round draw with Peterborough United.

Hasney Aljofree was struck by a bottle thrown from the crowd after scoring from the penalty spot, having endured taunting for much of the game.

However, Holloway had little sympathy for his player, saying: "To celebrate like that was a disgrace and if I'd been a fan I'd have thrown a bottle myself.

"The goalkeeper had pulled off a great save before the penalty had to be re-taken and there was no need to disrespect their fans at all.

"It was a situation where a little common-sense was needed and only captain Lilian Nalis showed any by trying to get the players back. I had a right go at all of them for what happened."

Aljofree added later on: "I was getting all sorts of stick from their fans and I just dashed off to celebrate in the heat of the moment.

"I apologise to any Peterborough fans I've wound up and infuriated, but there's no place for bottle-throwing. I think everyone crossed the line a bit."
