Plymouth 1-2 Sheff Wed
Sheffield Wednesday came from behind to record an encouraging away victory.

Wednesday went in at the interval trailing to Paul Wotton's 43rd-minute penalty after on-loan goalkeeper Brad Jones fouled Barry Hayles.

Early in the second half 19-year-old Sean McAllister equalised when he collected Burton O'Brien's cross and arrowed a shot into the top corner.

And on 83 minutes John Hills crossed for O'Brien, who converted to ensure Plymouth lost their unbeaten record.


  • Plymouth manager Ian Holloway:
  • "I didn't like the way we defended for the second goal and we got a little bit overloaded for the first goal.

    "It probably comes from the same thing, we tend to be a bit too deep at times.

    "I threw my dice as well as I could and how I am not sat here with at least a draw I don't know."

  • Sheffield Wednesday manager Paul Sturrock:

  • "We had a game plan, we stuck to it and we've come out the right end of it.

    "I did a personnel switch at half-time and put Kenny Lunt behind Chris Brunt and he started running the show.

    "We've also hit the woodwork twice in the second half and I am proud of the players. We rode our luck at the end, but we defended very well."
