Southampton 0-1 Plymouth

Southampton 0-1 Plymouth

Southampton   0 - 1   Plymouth

A Luke Summerfield strike was enough to shock League One promotion hopefuls Southampton and give Peter Reid his first competitive win as Plymouth boss.

Saints dominated the first half but failed to turn possession into goals with Dean Hammond twice heading wide.

Argyle took advantage just after the restart, with Summerfield prodding in from Rory Fallon's knock-down.

A stunned Southampton soldiered on but only Adam Lallana's stinging effort troubled goalkeeper David Button.

Back in League One after six seasons in the Championship, a victory for Plymouth looked like a distant dream for Reid as Southampton poured forward at every opportunity.

606: DEBATE

With Lee Barnard and David Connolly providing stellar service into the box, it was a combination of poor finishing and resolute defending that saw Argyle survive the early Saints barrage.

Connolly twice swung over a pinpoint cross, only to see Hammond plant his header just wide on both occasions.

But without the prowess of striker Ricky Lambert, who failed a late fitness test on his groin, Southampton struggled to find the cutting edge that last season's top scorer provided.

Saints' lack of punch in front of goal was eventually punished shortly after the break when Summerfield reacted first to Fallon's towering header and slid the ball past a despairing Kelvin Davis.

Substitute Lallana did his best to reinvigorate a faltering Southampton, but his forward-thinking passes were not reciprocated by his team-mates. Instead he took it upon himself to go for goal but Button was equal to it.

Some last-ditch defending by Benin international Reda Johnson allowed Argyle to see the game through, and with keeper Davis charging upfield for a corner in the dying seconds, desperation only turned to disappointment for the home side when the final whistle finally came.


Southampton manager Alan Pardew told BBC Radio Solent:
"We had some good quality but they were diligent, it was a lesson for us.

"We were so dominant we thought we were going to go on and win the game, but for ten minutes we lost our way.

"There is obviously a lot of focus on us and we have to be big enough to deal with it."
