Boston United began life without Jason Lee in abject fashion as they crashed to a 4-0 defeat at Vauxhall Motors.
After Lee was sacked earlier this week, caretaker boss Graham Hyde took charge of the Pilgrims, but oversaw an embarrassing first half display.
Tom Rutter's early brace put the Motormen in the driving seat before Danny Fearnehough and Ashley Stott made it 4-0 with little more than half an hour on the clock.
With the game over as a contest, Boston improved in the second half, but still almost conceded again when Louis Barnes struck the post with a penalty after Gareth Jelleyman had been penalised for handball.
After the match, Hyde accused his players of "feeling sorry for themselves" following Lee's dismissal.
Attention now switches to Lee's successor, with Hyde insisting he is yet to decide whether to apply for the post.
