Plymouth Argyle's former Belgium international striker Emile Mpenza completed a full 90 minutes in his first start for the club on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old was part of the Argyle reserve team which beat Yeovil Town's second string 2-0 at Home Park.

It is the latest step for Mpenza, who has not started a first team game for nearly a year, as he tries to build up his match fitness.

Ben Gerring and Jason Puncheon got the goals for the Pilgrims.
