Newly promoted Plymouth made a losing return to League One as they suffered defeat at Peterborough United.The Pilgrims fell behind just four minutes into their opening fixture of the season when a Leo Da Silva Lopes cross took a wicked deflection off Gary Sawyer – who was credited with an own goal – and flummoxed goalkeeper Luke McCormick.Plymouth conceded again two minutes into the second period as their appeals for a foul were ignored after Posh debutant Jack Marriott robbed defender Sonny Bradley. Marriott then laid a second goal on a plate for Junior Morias.

Terrific saves from McCormick kept Derek Adams’ side in the contest as he denied Doughty and Marriott before Plymouth halved their arrears.Substitute Gregg Wylde marked the start of his second spell in Pilgrims colours by firing past the previously unbeatable Jonathan Bond with 14 minutes to go.On-loan Posh keeper Bond earlier denied the visitors on a host of occasions, most notably when pulling off a stunning double-save from Joel Grant and Antoni Sarcevic.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsPeterborough1Bond5Tafazolli6Baldwin27Taylor18Da Silva LopesBooked at 29minsSubstituted forPennyat 89’minutes7Edwards20Doughty42GrantBooked at 66mins11MaddisonSubstituted forLloyd-McGoldrickat 81’minutes14Marriott16MoriasSubstituted forKanuat 69’minutesSubstitutes3Hughes8Forrester10Lloyd-McGoldrick17Penny19Kanu23Chettle24TibbettsPlymouth23McCormick18Threlkeld5Edwards15Bradley3Sawyer14JervisSubstituted forLameirasat 72’minutes7Sarcevic24FoxBooked at 51mins10CareyBooked at 27mins19TaylorSubstituted forAinsworthat 21’minutes16GrantSubstituted forWyldeat 58’minutesSubstitutes1te Loeke2Miller4Songo’o8Ainsworth11Lameiras17Taylor-Sinclair21WyldeReferee:John BusbyAttendance:7,622Match StatsHome TeamPeterboroughAway TeamPlymouthPossessionHome44%Away56%ShotsHome17Away16Shots on TargetHome8Away6CornersHome2Away11FoulsHome13Away16Live TextPosted at Match ends, Peterborough United 2, Plymouth Argyle 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+7′ Second Half ends, Peterborough United 2, Plymouth Argyle 1.Posted at 90’+7′ Attempt missed.
