Plymouth Argyle 2-1 Barnet

Jake Jervis
Jake Jervis joined Argyle on a free transfer from Ross County in the summer

Striker Jake Jervis scored his seventh goal of the season as Plymouth Argyle came from behind to beat Barnet and move up to second in League Two.

The Bees took the lead when Curtis Weston teed up Aaron McLean to fire past Argyle keeper Luke McCormick.

Graham Carey levelled with his fifth goal of the season, powerfully guiding the ball in from the edge of the box.

But Argyle sealed victory on the hour when Gregg Wylde ran down the wing and found Jervis, who hooked the ball in.

Barnet boss Martin Allen told BBC London 94.9:

Martin Allen on Plymouth v Barnet

"I thought we played very very well as a team, I thought tonight was a superb performance.

"It's very frustrating not to come away with anything, and once again our team has played so well, played with such spirit, played with such quality and completely nullified the opposition.

"How we have lost that game, I'll never know."
