Sturrock Pleased With Cavalier Pilgrims

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock was delighted with his side`s application following a home point against Queens Park Rangers.

Steven MacLean`s second half strike had drawn the Greens level after Heidar Helguson had put the R`s ahead with his first goal.

Sturrock believes that his side kicked on to look for the win, and came up narrowly short:

'We had a go,' Sturrock told Pafc.co.uk

'We still stayed with four forwards and pushed on. The full-backs pushed on and Clarky was excellent in the second half.

'You are just as well losing 2-0 as you are losing 1-0. The cavaliers were on at the end, so we were a bit open but we wanted to try and get a winner.

'If we had lost one at the end, we would be kicking ourselves but I'd rather have a go if we are going to pick up points at home.

'We finished with the two cavaliers down the wings and it definitely seemed to work, and I was relatively pleased."

The Scotsman affectionately nicknamed, Luggy praised forward Steven MacLean for his strike to level the game:

'He [MacLean] did really, really well. Steve and I have obviously had words this season, and I did feel he had lost a bit of confidence in front of goal.

'Since he has come back into the fray, I can't fault his application and attitude, and it was nice today to get the icing on the cake as far as the equaliser was concerned.'

Former R`s Simon Walton and Chris Barker had contrasting fortune on the day, with the former singled out for special praise:

'Walton had an excellent game again today,

'He is starting to do what I am looking for and starting to do the right things."

'Barks has come in and put his hand up,

'He was too deep and the spin has beaten him."

In a game of many incidents Sturrock believed that there were a couple of penalties in the game, however he does not stipulate which way:

'I thought there were a couple of penalties in there today and a couple of clearances off the line we were claiming, and all the chances we created.

'The boys are all saying it was in the box. I'm not too sure the other one was over the line.

'I began to think Lady Luck had turned our bottom on us again but she came good in the end.'
