Plymouth   2 - 1   Scunthorpe

Plymouth 2-1 Scunthorpe

Plymouth 2-1 Scunthorpe

Lowly Plymouth earned their first home victory of the season thanks to goals from Rory Fallon and Alan Judge.

Both sides spurned chances before Fallon put the hosts in front when heading home Gary Sawyer's cross.

Scunthorpe went level when Romain Larrieu brought down Martyn Woolford in the area and the prolific Gary Hooper scored from the penalty spot.

A minute later Plymouth were back in front with Judge scoring from the spot after he was fouled by Josh Lillis.


Plymouth manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Radio Devon:

"The thing about football is that winning becomes as much of a habit as losing.

"The win in the week has buoyed the boys. Before if they had got pegged back they would have let it affect them.

"Today they have gone straight up the other end and got a goal back, which turned out to be the winner."

Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:
"We came with a game plan to play narrow, through the middle and get the Hayes-Hooper combination going against their young centre-backs and it's worked well.

"The first half I was pleased with but we had good opportunities and have not taken them. We have come away from home and we are looking nice and solid and could have scored three or four goals in the first half.

"We targeted this game as one where we could take all three points because Plymouth are struggling and we have come away with nothing."
