Flitcroft: Work to be done

New Bury boss David Flitcroft believes there is plenty of work to be done after a 2-1 loss at Home Park.

On-loan Sheffield Wednesday forward Caolan Lavery had celebrated his first Argyle start with the 11th minute opener, cutting in from the left before cleverly beating Bury keeper Brian Jensen with a deft finish.

Chris Sedgwick levelled with a sublime 20 yard lob that proved to be just a consolation as Reuben Reid grabbed the winner.

"Quite a few aspects were good, the forward play is something we are working on and that was good, was incisive and decisive," he said.

"But you have got to keep clean sheets to win games and the defending left a lot to be desired. It was very disappointing.

"We tried to stay on the right path, our equaliser was a well worked goal but to get caught on the sucker punch when we were dominating the game at times was a bit of a body blow.

"It is not going to be a quick-fix, it will get worse before it gets better and I am not going to fix it in two games so there's a lot of work to be done.

"I am looking forward to doing that but it is going to take time. This is not about now, or where we are at Christmas this is about the end of the season and I know where will be at the end of the season, we will be in League Two.

"There are a lot of hard games, tough matches coming up but we are certainly prepared for the fight."
