Speaking after the match Argyle manager, Peter Reid, was quoted as saying: "We played extremely well and I think any neutral observer would say we deserved something out of the game. We created numerous opportunities, but you have got to hit the back of the net. All in all, I have got to say I thought we played good football. We were patient and our possession was good. The players have done really well and it hasn't gone for them. You can't call it bad luck. You have to say we haven't been clinical enough. I think they had three or four chances and stuck two away. I would hate to count the number of our chances, and their goalkeeper [Shwan Jalal] has made some good saves, but we didn't hit the target often enough. Just before they scored their first goal, we had a great chance [created for Rory Fallon] and we didn't stick it away. Like anyone in football will tell you, goals change games, so we were always chasing it. But we chased it well, and I thought we kept our composure and kept patient. We got the equaliser, but then we were pushing forward for the winner and got caught on the sucker punch".
