Plymouth 2-1 City

Poor defending just before half time enabled Plymouth to score 2 goals in a couple of minutes that effectively sealed this match. Although Chopra got one back in the second period, and City generally played better after the break, they never looked like dominating this game, and frankly were well off the top of their game.

Wayne Routledge making his loan debut looked good, and you can immediately tell that he's got enough quality to be a Premiership player - as does Chopra, but elsewhere we just looked ordinary.

The early defending was awful - we could have been 2 or 3 dwon inside the first 10 minutes, and that's surely something Dave Jones will need tolook at. We seem to have reverted back to the pass sideways then backwards then hump it up the field sort of football.

Reading at home on Tuesday evening. We'll have to improve if we're going to get anything out of that one.
