Plymouth Argyle 2-0 Forest Green Rovers

Plymouth, pursuing promotion, got back on track with a comfortable 2-0 home win over league side Forest Green Rovers.

Second-placed Argyle lost to Barnsley last week but opened the scoring after winning a corner on the right.

Midfielder Jordan Houghton’s delivery was headed in powerfully from close range by centre-back James Bolton in the eighth minute.

Kyle McAllister had Forest Green’s best first-half performance but his shot from 18 yards out in the 17th minute was easily saved by Callum Burton.

Plymouth playmaker Danny Mayor almost put Argyle ahead after 30 minutes, but his shot from the edge of the box was deflected off the post by Harvey Bunker.

The Greens extended their lead in the 47th minute after a sharp run from James Wilson and a cross from the right at the far post. Unmarked Norwich full-back Bali Mumba headed home, past Rovers keeper Lewis Thomas.

Striker Niall Ennis grabbed Callum Wright’s cross to come on but fired over the goal in a goalmouth scramble volley in the 62nd minute but Argyle had done enough.
