On-loan Yeovil striker Reuben Reid opened the scoring from close range after latching onto a rebound as man-of-the match-Joe Bryan's thumping shot bounced off the post.

Argyle surged further ahead in Saturday's League Two clash at Home Park when Onismor Bhasera's pace-driven cross from the left flew off Cheltenham's Michael Hector and in, on 54 minutes.

The win, their fourth in five, lifted Argyle to 18th in the tightly-packed basement, three points above second-from-bottom York with a game in hand.

"I thought it was a very good performance - a great comeback after the disappointment of losing at York," the former Chesterfield boss said.

"We weren't at the races at York so to come back and give that performance against a very good team, who are going for automatic (promotion) was outstanding and we could have scored a lot more goals than we did.

"I have always said the magic word is consistency and that's what I have been trying to get out of the players.

"I won't leave them alone until we get that, and I think we are improving.

"The York game was a downer, it was the way we performed more than anything else and I don't expect that. I have been very pleased with the way we have been playing, I think we are improving."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
