Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Plymouth Argyle

Reuben Reid's winner helped Plymouth Argyle record their third victory of the week as they beat Tranmere Rovers.

Anthony O'Connor's sublime cross picked out Reid, who powered his header home just before the half-hour mark.

Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick was in fine form to deny George Barker midway through the second half.

Deane Smalley and Reid missed chances to wrap up victory for Plymouth but they held on and now move into sixth in the table.
