Plymouth Vs Southampton
But the former Newcastle United and England Under-21 assistant manager insists the club’s fortunes could be reversed. “The players need leadership and I’m going to give it,” Pearson said. “I’m not doing this out of anger. I have no illusions about the scale of the job. There’s a lot of work to be done. The players’ confidence will be a big factor, that’s the challenge ahead of us.”
Former Portsmouth Midfielder Makes Southampton Prediction After Premier League Relegation
The lowest crowd in the league since St Mary’s Stadium opened was a Southampton side who have recorded just one league win since mid-December struggling to beat a tough Plymouth side in the first half.
It was Plymouth that did it, after 31 minutes. Plymouth defender Lilian Nalis let his weight pass through Southampton’s defenders and into the path of Hungarian midfielder Hammosi, who fired a powerful left-footed shot past Kevin Davies into the Southampton goal. Later and from a similar position, Halmosi almost doubled the benefit of visitors.
Plymouth were ahead two minutes later. Winger Jim Paterson fired a harmless effort at goal from the other side of the pitch that curled in the corner of the goal, past Davis, who did not move. Southampton supporters showed their derision.
Southampton improved in the second half. His best chance came when Stern John picked up a high ball before letting it drop and firing a low shot wide of Luke McCormick’s post.

Plymouth manager Paul Sturrock, former Southampton manager and one of the eight in the last seven years, was pleased with his team’s performance. “The work rate is excellent. January was not the happiest month for us, but the hard work in the training camp paid off.”
The victory puts them within two points of the meeting point. Sturrock is confident his side can push past those above them. “We need to change the way we play at home and perform away from home,” said the Scotsman.
Pearson added: “We want to get back to business. We will review this practice and exit this model.”
