Derek Adams praises maturity as Plymouth Argyle preserve lead at summit of Sky Bet League 2

16 November 2015

Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams has praised the maturity of his young side following their latest win over York City.

The Pilgrims maintained their five-point lead at the top of Sky Bet League 2, after goals from Jake Jervis and Graham Carey fired them to their seventh win in eight League games.

After producing a goal and an assist, Carey was singled out for praise by his manager, who was also keen to credit the resilience of his young squad.

“I don’t like to pick out people usually, but Graham Carey was absolutely outstanding today,” he told

“He’s a top player. I’ve signed him three times now and he’s really done the business.

“He was involved in a lot of the good work we had today and he’s unfortunate not to have scored more. He’s created a number of opportunities and his all-round performance was top class, but it was a team performance.

“I said before the game that I wanted to have men out there today. We’ve got a lot of boys, because of their ages, but a lot of them stood up to the test and they did really well today.”

Plymouth return to Home Park in search of a fourth successive Sky Bet League 2 victory this weekend, and host south coast neighbours Exeter City.
