Sturrock slams beaten Argyle

14 Aug 2008 - 07:23:25

Plymouth Argyle boss Paul Sturrock has launched a devastating attack on his own players after they were beaten 2-0 by Luton Town in the Carling Cup.

Argyle's first round exit at Kenilworth Road, to a side two divisions and 62 places below them, was one of the biggest shocks of an eyebrow-raising opening to the competition.

Unlike some of the other seven Championship sides that were knocked out on Tuesday night, Argyle fielded a strong starting eleven.

Yet they could muster only two shots on target against the club bottom of League Two.

"Some of these fans will be going away disgusted. I'm disgusted with some of the players and they will pay a penalty for that," said a visibly angry Sturrock.

He also told the club's official website that: "There are certain players who are not playing to the standards that I want them to achieve.

"Our players should be honest and hard-working. I know I've got 11 that will give me that honesty, maybe 13.

"After that, the ones that fall by the wayside will be the ones that move on."
