Chipping Sodbury firsts continued their unlucky run with their third consecutive defeat, losing 4-0 to early league leaders Plymouth Parkway in the latest meeting at the Ridings.

Chipping Sodbury produced the opening chance of the match on Saturday, with Jordan Simpson putting Kalum Youngsam through, his lob was cleared off the line by the Plymouth defender.

Jonah Beer’s shot from the edge of the box six minutes later was comfortably saved by Moore in the Plymouth goal and as the game opened up both sides continued to push for an opening goal.

The visitors gradually took control of the next period of play and forced a series of corners.

New signing Josh Pandolfino worked hard leading the Sods line creating an opening on 24 minutes after beating two defenders, only to see his teammate just fail to control his cross field pass on the edge of the area.

A thigh injury to Simsek, the home keeper on the half hour proved decisive. Plymouth won a corner with just two minutes of the half remaining Jordan Bentley rose above the Sods defence to head home from 6 yards and give his side a 0-1 lead at the break.

The fast pace of the first half gave way to a more scrappy, second period with the visitors resorting to the long ball and both sides struggling to gain a foothold.

The visitors looked the more threatening as the half progressed and at 65 minutes they took a two nil lead when substitute Landricombe volleyed from just inside the area after the home defence had failed to clear.

Just four minutes later Landricombe added his second and his sides third when he again finished from close quarters after the Sods had left him unmarked.

Plymouth added a fourth on 80 minutes when Richards took advantage of some hesitant defending after a goalmouth scramble and fired home from just a few yards out.
