JACKIE McNamara has become the first-ever York City manager to start his tenure with three successive defeats.
The former Dundee Utd boss has enjoyed no honeymoon period since taking over the job last month.
McNamara fielded his third different back four in as many games against the Pilgrims but was still left ruing two more poorly-conceded goals by the break and his side could have trailed by more following a nervy defensive display.
The problems at York are there for all to see and the former Celtic full back might be wishing for the stress of Tannadice rather than the mess his new club is in.
He and his back room team have it all to do to change the clubs fortunes.
