Oxford United 2-3 Plymouth Argyle

Reuben Reid

Oxford United missed the chance to go top of the League Two table as Reuben Reid struck twice to seal an impressive win for Plymouth Argyle.

Caolan Lavery's long-range strike put the visitors ahead before Asa Hall equalised from outside the area.

Reid put Plymouth in front with a spot-kick after Dave Kitson handled before notching a second from close range.

Oxford were given some late hope when Neal Trotman put the ball into his own net but could not find an equaliser.
