Plymouth   1 - 0   Swindon

Highlights - Plymouth 1-0 Swindon

Plymouth 1-0 Swindon

Resurgent Plymouth moved off the bottom of League One with a win over Swindon, who replace them as the division's basement club.

Rory Fallon, playing against his former club, struck the game's only goal, sweeping home an accurate cross from Yannick Bolasie.

Joe Mason could have put the Pilgrims clear by half-time, but saw two shots in succession hit the woodwork.

Plymouth's third win in a row moves them above Swindon on goal difference.


Plymouth manager Peter Reid told BBC Radio Devon:
"It's a clean sheet and I've been desperate for one so all credit to the players.

"I'm delighted for Rory Fallon, absolutely delighted, as I think he's been terrific in the last three games.

"These players can make themselves heroes around this city if we pull it off - it's going to be difficult, but there's a chance."

Swindon Town boss Paul Hart told BBC Wiltshire:
"I think we did control the game, I think we played the only way we can play.

"There were some sterling performances out there and I was really pleased with my players.

"I felt we had chances, enough to win or at least get a point."
