plymouth argyle football club crestNew caretaker player-manager Carl Fletcher was full of praise for Plymouth Argyle as they beat visiting Macclesfield Town 2-0 to claim their first League Two win of the season.

Former club captain Fletcher, assisted by caretaker-keeper Romain Larrieu, said: "It's our first game, a good starting block and nice to get a clean sheet but a bonus to get three points. It gives us something to build on.

"Ro and I are under no illusions of the task in hand and we know that it involves everyone working hard. We are not getting too carried away. There are lots of things we need to improve on, and work on, but it's a good starting block.

"I think it just shows you that they put the work in during the week and get their rewards at the weekend. Ro and I said before the game we would have taken 0-0. It was important to keep that clean sheet.

"From our point of view we felt it was our responsibility to get the crowd behind us and the goals gave them to shout about."

Striker Warren Feeney headed the greens in front from Conor Hourihane's 20th minute free kick before left back Robbie Williams' thumped a 53rd minute free kick in off the underside of the bar from 25 yards.

Fletcher added: "We want winning to become a habit rather than a rarity. I want winning to become second nature so that when we are in the lead we can see a game out."

Simon Walton skippered the side yesterday.
