Here we bring a selection of the best supporter reaction on social media to the defeat.

@BigGazLaw: We weren’t great last night but probably had the better chances. Long trip, in the middle of a busy fixture schedule, against a genuinely good team. It’s not the end of the world.

@daniel_nice7: Think any criticism of #drfc is really harsh tonight. #pafc played very well for long periods, stretching us and exposing narrow full backs, and worked tirelessly off the ball to make it hard for us to play

@Gazz_Plods: We aren't losing by boatloads but sometimes we're not even in the game for long spells. On paper we're doing far better than we actually are. Need some of these injuries back quickly

@keiferbambi: Amos also shown DM why he should be getting more game time with that performance when he came on. Brilliant performance! DM has some work to do with this squad after the last two games because we’ve seen just how good we can be but we need to have more fight about us

@Matt_Walker96: Will always be thankful for Covid stopping me from making the trip down to Plymouth on a Tuesday night to watch us lose

@DRFC_ITEN: The shine is well and truly off our good start to the season now. Darren Moore has work to do to pick his side up and get going again. Small matter of the league leaders on Saturday next.

@18Dapper: #PAFC did one thing in that half which was enough to win the game. #DRFC much better in the second half but once again we fall to a 2-1 defeat to newly promoted opposition. Not top 6 material. Let’s see what Saturday brings against Lincoln.

@gaunt_nick: We've been worked out again. We struggle with teams who press us high up the pitch. Same as last season. DM needs to have more than one way of playing. Injuries are a concern as well. We bring these young lads in on loan and they quickly pick up an injury. Same as last season.
