Morecambe 2-1 Plymouth Argyle

Jamie Devitt
Jamie Devitt scored his first league goal of the season to give Morecambe victory

Morecambe's excellent start to the League Two season continued as a late goal sealed victory against Plymouth.

Kevin Ellison gave them the lead from close range when he reacted quickly to score from Jamie Devitt's free-kick.

Plymouth equalised shortly after with Peter Hartley thumping in a header from Lewis Alessandra's set-piece delivery.

Padraig Amond was denied by Argyle keeper Luke McCormick before Devitt finished Ellison's wayward shot from six yards out in the closing minutes.
