Plymouth   1 - 3   Sheff Wed

Plymouth were left still searching for their first win of the season as Wednesday took the points.

Marcus Tudgay was the architect of the opener for the hosts, heading back across goal for Richard Wood to score.

Tudgay then made it two in the second half from the spot after Marcel Seip hauled down Luke Varney in the area.

Alan Gow's excellent free-kick gave Plymouth hope late on but Tudgay wrapped up the win in stoppage time with a precise finish.


Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws:
"We worked extremely hard to get this win.

"We were resilient. The first goal was always going to be important. It was a set-piece move we worked on in training so obviously I am pleased with that.

"Overall I was really pleased with the team and the only negative was that we gave away silly fouls."

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock:

"There is such a thin line between winning and not winning. If Carl Fletcher's shot had hit inside of the post and gone in it would have been 1-1 and game on.

"We cannot afford to give away goals like we did, at a set-piece and with a sloppy penalty.

"We have got to start defending better as a team because I am sure we have got goals in us."
