Plymouth 3-1 Swansea
Plymouth Argyle moved up to eighth in Division Three with a win over Swansea.

Argyle's victory against their Welsh visitors was the first home win for the Greens and came after a stylish first-half performance as they went two goals in front.

Argyle took a 14th-minute lead through stand-in skipper Paul Wotton from the penalty spot after striker Micky Evans had been fouled by marker Kris O'Leary.

Nicky Banger, making his first start after joining Plymouth on a three-month contract, increased the home side's lead just before half time.

A superb cross from man-of-the-match Martin Phillips was headed on by Banger and into the far corner.

Phillips capped his man-of-the-match performance in the 61st minute when he finished from close range after Evans had headed on Wooton's free-kick.

Swansea countered in the 79th minute when French forward Mamady Sidibe pounced on a mistake in the home defence to drill the ball home past Plymouth keeper Romain Larrieu.

Sidibe missed a golden opportunity to double his tally a minute later when he was left unmarked to glance a Matthew Bound cross from the left just wide.
