Mariner’s reign begins with defeat

Date published: Saturday 12th December 2009 5:44

The hosts had failed to win any of their previous seven Championship outings but first-half goals from Richard Chaplow and Ross Wallace effectively sealed the points.

Midfielder Chaplow volleyed home the opener in the 10th minute and Scotland winger Wallace swept home a second 16 minutes later.

Plymouth’s only effort of note came in the 68th minute but Gary Sawyer’s 25-yard shot crashed against the bar.

The result ensured a dismal start to life under head coach Mariner, handed control of all footballing activities after Paul Sturrock was removed from his position on Thursday and given a business support role.
