Preston   2 - 0   Plymouth

Preston v Plymouth

Preston 2-0 Plymouth

Richard Chaplow and Ross Wallace scored as Preston ended their winless streak but ruined Paul Mariner's debut as manager of struggling Plymouth.

Preston had failed to win their previous seven games but Wallace shot narrowly wide before Chaplow volleyed PNE ahead from 30 yards.

Chris Brown then picked out Wallace, who slotted home from 12 yards.

Preston wasted numerous other chances before Plymouth's Gary Sawyer struck the woodwork with a 25-yard strike.


Preston coach Alan Irvine:
"I hoped a win was coming. I certainly felt we got close to winning games recently but have not done it.

"Maybe a lot of people turned up thinking it was a foregone conclusion that we would win the game.

"Plymouth lost their last three games 1-0, two of them in injury time, but they have played well in them."

Plymouth head coach Paul Mariner told BBC Radio Devon:

"There were moments where I thought it was coming together, and that's why we stuck with the system in the second half.

"I firmly believe that the players we have got, the systems we have come up with, I think it fits the players.

"This group here is a fantastic group. They have shocked me with their attitude of coming in to work, looking bright."
