The clip was uploaded into social media over the weekend, with the Pilgrims fanbase seen inside the venue singing chants ahead of the Championship clash at Huddersfield Town.

After setting off the pyro, smoke quickly fills the pub with is hard to see anything after 30 seconds with bar staff watching the situation play out around them.

The small child that can be in the video goes up to move some of the glasses away from the smoke, leaving viewers in hysterics.

The group were part of the 1,396 supporters backing Plymouth on the road, with them and their opponents Huddersfield playing out a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

Josh Koroma managed to earn the Terriers a point just before half time, after Morgan Whittaker had put the visitors in front on 12 minutes.

Plymouth head coach Ian Foster said after the game, as per pafc.co.uk: “I think we’ve only had four training sessions together as a group.

“I’m really pleased with the lads in terms of the information they’ve taken on board this week, which there has been a lot off.

“It was important for us to have a foundation when we play away from home. There’s no hiding place in terms of where we are in the table, away from home this season. We’re 23rd out of 24, which isn’t great, without a win on the road.

“We asked the players to have a solid foundation and a solid structure to break from. I thought at times we did that particularly well.

“We thought we could hurt the opposition, getting it wide and getting balls into the box. That was part of the game plan, and it was really pleasing to see the boys implement that, and for it to come off. It was a great start for us and one that we thoroughly deserved.

“We’re disappointed with the goal [we conceded] – we think it’s a foul on Darko Gyabi – but I’m pleased with the character of the boys and the resilience of the players.

“The big thing is, we knew we’d come here and have to suffer at times. The big message to the players was ‘we suffer together’. In those moments, make sure there’s that togetherness, that resilience and they battled hard for the point. We’ve got plenty of work to do, and we will do it, but it’s a good start for us.”

“They were excellent, both of them,” said Foster on debutants Ashley Phillips, 18, and Darko Gyabi, 19,.
“They fit in the group incredibly well, and that’s credit to the other boys. We’ve welcomed them.

“I don’t look at birth certificates when I pick teams. They’re both teenagers coming into what is a very, very difficult game and I thought they both handled it really, really well.

“Ashley was solid throughout the game. I thought his in-possession game was good, and we’ve seen with Darko what he’s capable of. He’s full of energy. He wants to get on the ball, play forward and break lines.

“Those boys aren’t quite there in terms of match intensity at this level, so that’s great for them to get 90-plus minutes in the legs. They’ll be stronger for it next week.”

“They were terrific,” he said of the travelling support. “[They are] really intelligent fans because they recognised when we needed them. When we needed a boost, when the players needed a lift, they really got behind them.

“Those moments when we suffer, we speak about the players sticking together, but we need the supporters as well, and they were excellent and played their part today.”

Huddersfield’s Darren Moore said as per Sky Sports: “I think we’ve all agreed in here that we’ve just dropped two points, so I think it’s fair to agree with that.

“I can only express that even further.

“We’re on the same page because that’s the high standards that we set here.

“No. For me it’s about making sure you put all your energies into the game, to keep the positives going.

“Of course we want to win games, that’s the business, the industry, it won’t ever change and the next opportunity we get is the next one.

“We all know we’re trying extremely hard to do that.

“Hopefully, from my positivity and my determination, the boys can continue to do that.”
