Plymouth 0-1 Leeds
A Marino Keith own-goal handed Leeds their first away win of the season and consigned Plymouth to their first defeat at Home Park in over a year.

A scramble in the box after 43 minutes saw Paul Butler's shot skim off the head of Keith and into the net.

The Scottish forward then had a chance to atone but lost out in a one-on-one with United keeper Neil Sullivan.

Matthew Spring nearly doubled the lead for Leeds in the 77th minute but his rising drive was palmed over the bar.

  • Plymouth manager Bobby Williamson:

    "We're bitterly disappointed to have lost our long unbeaten home record. It's a big blow.

    "I felt we deserved something out of the game, especially second half and I couldn't have asked for any more from my boys.

    "We gave everything we had in the second half, but they stood up to everything we threw at them and unfortunately we did not get any breaks."

  • Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell:

    "To come to Plymouth, with the record they have had for the last year, and get a 1-0 victory is what any manager would like to do.

    "After we weathered the early storm, we matched the power of Plymouth and then created some very good chances.

    "I'm glad to have got the first away win but feel we have been unlucky not to get it before."
