Crewe suffer home defeat

Crewe Alexandra were beaten 3-0 by promotion favourites Plymouth Argyle on the opening day of the season.

Manager Dave Artell handed a debut to Daniel Powell one of their summer signings, while Perry Ng was given the captain's armband.

Will Jaaskelainen got the nod in goal while Ryan Wintle slotted into centre half in the absence of injured defenders Olly Lancashire and Nicky Hunt.

The visitors got off to a dream start with Callum McFadzean opening the scoring after just four minutes.

Joel Grant then doubled Argyle's lead against his former club on 26 minutes.

McFadzean then added his second and the visitors third in stoppage time to give former Crewe player Ryan Lowe a dream start as manager of Plymouth.
