Newport County 1-3 Plymouth Argyle

Jordan Slew
Plymouth Argyle forward Jordan Slew has scored three goals this season

Newport County's plight at the bottom of League Two worsened as they were beaten by leaders Plymouth.

The Exiles were reduced to 10 men on 36 minutes when goalkeeper Joe Day was dismissed for bringing down Plymouth forward Jordan Slew.

Argyle's Graham Carey converted the penalty and added another from the spot when he was fouled by Darren Jones.

A fabulous 25-yard volley from County's Jon Parkin had levelled matters earlier on, but Slew's late strike sealed it.
