Plymouth 2-1 Ipswich
Micky Evans ended his Plymouth career in style after hitting the winner on his farewell appearance for the club.

Evans scored his first goal in 37 matches early in the second half after heading home when Vincent Pericard headed on Tony Capaldi's free-kick.

Nicky Forster had put Ipswich ahead by heading in Chris Casement's cross for his fourth goal in four games.

Evans set up Capaldi to level before winning a game which left Ipswich in 15th - their lowest finish since 1966.

  • Plymouth manager Tony Pulis:
    "The script could not have been written any better. It was a great goal, a great day for Micky and for us as a club.

    "It was important to finish with a win - three-and-a-half months is a long time to dwell on a loss.

    "I was delighted with the win - and yet again I felt we could have had more goals really."

  • Ipswich manager Joe Royle:
    "I am angry. The performance was just not good enough and I expected more, especialy after we took the lead.

    "I am disappointed for our fans, who have travelled a long way to see this.

    "But we have got three or four out and we did not match Plymouth physically. We needed more strength and the players like Alan Lee give us that."
