Plymouth   0 - 1   Watford

Plymouth v Watford

Plymouth 0-1 Watford

Bottom-club Plymouth's poor start to the season continued as Watford left Home Park with a win.

Tom Cleverley struck after just four minutes when he swept in a cross from Don Cowie via Gary Sawyer's outstretched boot.

Henri Lansbury's powerful strike for Watford hit the woodwork, while Plymouth were denied an equaliser when Karl Duguid's header struck a post.

That was the closest Plymouth came as they lost a fifth game on the trot.


Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock:

Sturrock frustrated by missed chances

"I am heartfelt sorry for the team but we are creating chances so that gives me real hope.

"I could see we have still got a spirit within the team - and that's vital.

"The positives are there and now we need a settled back four to stop the nerves at the back. We're looking all right and I'm sure goals will come."

Watford boss Malky Mackay:

"I am absolutely delighted that we have come away with a win, a clean sheet and a battling performance.

"Plymouth threw everything at us in the second half and a really young squad showed immense heart, courage, team effort and maturity.

"I thought in the first half an hour we were immense but perhaps should have dominated more with chances."
