Plymouth Argyle need to improve says manager Peter Reid

Plymouth Argyle manager Peter Reid says his side must improve after they lost their fourth successive match.

The Pilgrims went down 3-0 at Gillingham on Saturday to leave them third from bottom in League Two.

"One point from the first four games in the league isn't good enough, we need to improve," he told BBC Radio Devon.

"We weren't effective enough with the ball and we gave the ball away too easily when we were breaking," the Argyle boss added.

"There were times when passes should have been picked out and we did not do it well enough," Reid continued.

"That's not a lack of strength or quality or pace, that's just passing the ball."

The Pilgrims, who are still in administration as the club looks to find a buyer, have yet to win a match this season.

And despite competing well with Gillingham for three quarters of the match Plymouth conceded three goals in the final 20 minutes.

"There's no use feeling sorry for ourselves," Reid said.

"Once that goal went in we were too easily knocked off the ball, we didn't win enough second balls."
