Ryan Lowe admitted he told his Plymouth Argyle players some ‘home truths’ as they were beaten 3-0 by Colchester United.

THREE silly goals and a first half that can only be described as a frustrating blip in Argyle’s excellent recent run of form proved very costly at Colchester United.

The Greens actually started quite well but then fell behind to a goal from Ben Stevenson and a quickfire Theo Robinson double gave us a mountain to climb at half-time, as Colchester earned the three points in Sky Bet League Two.

Despite the disappointment of a first defeat in seven for the Pilgrims, manager Ryan Lowe accepted a rare display where his team fell short and the chance to make immediate amends comes in the form of a trip to Salford on Tuesday night.

“In the first ten minutes, we were ok, but we left a man in the box and he’s scored,” said Ryan. “The second one, we left a man unattended in the six-yard box, and the third one was a mistake.

“For 30-odd minutes of the game, it just wasn’t us, we weren’t quite at it. You have to give Colchester credit, I’m disappointed with the goals conceded but we haven’t had many games like that.

“The lads have been terrific but they’ve been told a few home truths and we need to make sure now we get back on that bike because today we fell of it.

“It won’t define our season, it’s a blip, it’s one loss. We’ve conceded three stupid goals on our behalf and the lads know that. The lads who made the individual errors are disappointed but that’s football, and Colchester are a good team.

“They’re a good team, well organised and we fell short today. The second half was a lot better, a bit more solid and we changed shape to get three strikers up there and have a good go, but you sometimes have off days, and we had an off 45 minutes.”

At the end of the match I thought about posting "as long as he doesn't say we were better second half" but I thought he couldn't be that stupid.


Well I was wrong.


You made a mistake Mr Hallett-please put it right.

Dogshit in the first half so it could only be better in the second half, lets hope its a one off.
