Coventry 0-1 Plymouth
Cherno Samba marked his Plymouth debut by ending Coventry's unbeaten home start to the season.

The 20-year-old headed in fellow substitute Hasney Aljofree's cross eight minutes from time.

But the Pilgrims were indebted to keeper Luke McCormick, who produced a fine display to keep Coventry at bay.

The 22-year-old tipped a 20-yard Stern John effort over in the first-half and made another acrobatic save from Colin Cameron's free-kick after the break.


  • Coventry boss Micky Adams:
    "We looked nervous from the start and never seemed to get to grips with the game.

    "Sometimes it is easy to say we were poor but that was probably as good as an away performance I have seen.

    "Our away form needs improving and we have to learn from Plymouth who were resolute and had a real team effort."

  • Plymouth boss Ian Holloway:
    "I am really pleased for Samba.

    "He has been in Spain for the last three or four years and we beat off other clubs to sign him.

    "He has had to be patient for a game but plays with a smile on his face and has been a breath of fresh air around the place. I'm really pleased for him."
