Match Report: Notts County limp to defeat against Plymouth Argyle

Joe Jones

Notts County's hangover from last season has continued into the fourth match of the current campaign as John Sheridan's charges limped to a third defeat in four games against Plymouth Argyle.

The Magpies began the season with a 2-0 defeat at Yeovil Town, followed it up with an early exit from the EFL Cup at Scunthorpe, before struggling to a 1-1 defeat at home to Stevenage, and on Tuesday night, a 2-1 defeat was the order of the day.

First blood went Plymouth's way on the quarter-hour mark as full-back Gary Miller broke forward into an attacking position and played the ball inside to former Notts loanee Jake Jervis, who turned and shot low past goalkeeper Adam Collin.

Jon Stead equalised just three minutes later in emphatic fashion as he raced down the right and then cut into the penalty area before slotting the ball past Luke McCormick at his near post from eight yards out.

However, the third and final goal of the game would come just after the half-hour mark, courtesy of Connor Smith's corner being headed home by Nauris Bulvitis.

Notts tried desperately to get themselves back into the game and nearly snatched a last-gasp equaliser, but McCormick made a brilliant save to deny Michael O'Connor at the death.

Bad result, two defeats and a draw doesn't get the fans excited and morale within the whole camp is quite down. As I've been saying, the first win will be massive and we should keep in mind that it is early days. I do worry what happens if we get to the 7th game and the record is like 5 defeats + 2 draws.

How do we as a club progress from that but Louis Laing's signing should boost morale at the back.

Perhaps time to give Loach a try.
