Plymouth 1-1 Wolverhampton
An own goal from Matthias Doumbe saw Wolves earn a point at Plymouth as both sides stuttered to an unconvincing draw at Home Park.

Veteran striker Barry Hayles had given Plymouth the lead on his debut when he scored with a right-foot shot.

But, just 90 seconds into the second half, a shot from Kevin O'Connor was deflected by Doumbe into his own net.

Wolves keeper Matt Murray saved from David Norris late on to keep matters level in an uninspiring encounter.

  • Plymouth boss Ian Holloway:
    "I was very proud of the lads - I haven't been here long and I was very pleased.

    "It was a very emotional day for me, because of the reception I got. The crowd here are absolutely marvellous.

    "If you look at the stats, we had more chances than them but didn't convert them - on another day we might have."

  • Wolves boss Mick McCarthy:
    "You would expect some gloom, doom and apathy about the club after losing 12 players.

    "But I think some of it has been lifted by my appointment, hopefully, and a bit more by this performance.

    "I've only been 12 days in the job and I was pleased with how we battled. Not many sides will come away from Plymouth with a point."
