Sturrock: We looked lacklustre and a bit sloppy

Southend managed to fight back to earn a point at Plymouth on Saturday afternoon but Paul Sturrock wasn't happy.

The Shrimpers boss admitted that his former side "shaded" the first half but his side were "sloppy" for periods throughout the match: 'I was very disappointed with our first-half performance. We looked lacklustre and a bit sloppy even though we had a couple of decent chances that we could have done better with.

'I thought Plymouth shaded the first half and we came out and were sloppy again in the first 10 minutes of the second half. But then we started to ground things down, made our substitutions, got out goal and I did believe that we were going on to win that game.'

Credit was given to on loan Britt Assombalonga once again, with it his goal that secured a point: 'Britt Assombalonga took his goal very well. He's a decent player, and we've been lucky with him because he wants to learn, he wants to improve. He asks questions and he's strong and honest.'
