3 things we clearly learned about Plymouth Argyle in their win over Bradford



Plymouth Argyle took all three points against Bradford City on Saturday with a 2-1 win at Home Park, lifting the Pilgrims up to 8th in the League Two standings.

The Devon outfit have now lost just one of their last eight games in the League, and have four wins from their last five.

Here are three things we clearly learnt about Plymouth from their last match…

Plymouth finally win a league game in which they’ve conceded

You did read that correctly. Prior to Saturday’s result against the Bantams, Plymouth had failed to win in every league game in which they conceded in.

The last time Plymouth dropped points from a winning position in the league was against Scunthorpe in October, where they could not hold on to their 2-1 lead.

It will be a sigh of relief for Pilgrims fans, who no longer have that record hanging over them, showing that they’ve been working on holding onto the lead if the opposition comes back into the game.

Arygle were gifted both goals

Plymouth made a lightning-quick start to Saturday’s game, going two goals to the good within the first 25 minutes.

Goals from Byron Moore and Joe Edwards eased the nerves at Home Park for Ryan Lowe and the Green Army. However, both goals were sloppy from Bradford’s point of view, but Plymouth will not mind one bit.

Byron Moore’s opener was the result of very poor goalkeeping from Bradford stopper Richard O’Donnell, who made an unconvincing parry that evaded his grasp.

The second goal also involved the Bantams keeper, who this time was forced into a rushed clearance that was played straight into the feet of Joel Grant after good pressing from Joe Edwards. The attacker then squared the ball back to Edwards, who slotted home to double Argyle’s advantage.

Antoni Sarcevic’s performance went under the radar

The 27-year-old had another positive game for Plymouth, in a string of performances that have made him stand out in the team.

Since Plymouth have started to be more direct in their attacks, Sarcevic has had an upturn in his performances. He won two aerial duals from central midfield against Bradford, according to WhoScored.
