Sturrock pleased with point

04 Feb 2009 - 12:03:58

Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock has praised his side's response to his relegation warning in their last two games.

The Pilgrims secured a second successive draw - 1-1 with Preston North End on Tuesday - to pick up valuable points in their battle to beat the drop.

"The players have worked very, very hard over these last two games, but we looked very leggy the last 15 minutes due to a very strenuous performance (at Ipswich) on Saturday," he told the club's official website.

"To be fair, I was very pleased with our first half performance. I thought we did very well. We got ourselves in the right areas and had a lot of half chances.

"The second half I felt we defended our box too deep and it just meant that each time they chucked it into the box for the two big boys, it caused mayhem.

"That said, when you're fighting for your lives and you're hanging on, it's very difficult to give up that space in behind you.

"As I said, though, these are two very spirited performances. We have been well organised and the players have responded to the call. I have been very pleased with the performances as a team and as individuals."
