Plymouth 1-0 Crystal Palace
Scott Sinclair's second-half goal gave Plymouth their first Championship win in five games.

The on-loan Chelsea man struck after 48 minutes, racing onto Luke McCormick's ball before emphatically firing into the top corner from 12 yards.

Palace had their chances, with defender Leon Cort shooting wide from 12 yards in the first half.

And after Sinclair's goal, Shefki Kuqi twice went close but was denied by Pilgrims' keeper Luke McCormick.

  • Plymouth boss Ian Holloway on Scott Sinclair's winnerr:
    "He scored one of the best goals I have seen in a long time.

    "It can't be a fluke because he did it at Barnet - it's wonderful to see a fellow run with the ball like that.

    "It takes a special goal to win a Championship match and that was one and I'm delighted to keep a clean sheet."

  • Palace boss Peter Taylor:
    "We have got seven matches to go and play four of the teams that are above us.

    "Three of them are at home and one of them's away, so it's still a little bit in our hands.

    "But we cannot afford to slip up again and we could have done with something today."
