LEAGUE ONE Adams praise for vital Argyle

Plymouth Argyle Football Club club crestPlymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams praised his side as they claimed a crucial 2-1 League One win over Shrewsbury thanks to Graham Carey's 89th minute penalty winner.
Carey roofed home from the spot following a foul on fellow Pilgrims playmaker Ruben Lameiras.
Freescoring Freddie Ladapo took his season's goal haul to 16 (15 in league) in the eighth minute, an opener cancelled out by Shrews skipper and former Argyle midfielder Olly Norburn, who followed up his Matt Macey saved spot kick to level on the hour.
Adams - who side soared to 12th, five points ahead of Shrewsbury in 20th - said: “The table is so tight it was vital we got the result and the three points.
“Our first half performance was excellent.
“We probably should have been five or six-nil up at half time.
“The amount of opportunities we had on goal was very good.
“We started the game well and credit to Ruben Lameiras and David Fox taking a quick corner kick and getting Freddie a goal, which put us on the front foot.
“We were very strong in the first half.
“We should have been out of sight, won the game and had the three points in the bag but we gave away a free kick right after half time, a corner and a penalty not long after and they were able to get back into the match without really troubling us until then.
“The way we passed the ball and created opportunities it was a better performance from us tonight.
“Ruben won the penalty and Graham took it very well. There was a lot of pressure on him but he was composed and dispatched it very well.
“Like I said it was vital we got the three points because we were playing a team around about us, so that was important.”
