Match ends, Mansfield Town 0, Plymouth Argyle 1.
Plymouth picked up their first win in eight games thanks to Neal Trotman's stoppage-time winner at Mansfield.
The Stags were without their first-choice keeper and three defenders through injury but started well.
Sam Clucas missed several chances, while Matt Rhead's header sailed over the crossbar.
The second half was a dull affair, but the Pilgrims made the hosts pay for their profligacy when Trotman headed in Conor Hourihan's free-kick.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"The frustrating thing is I thought we played some good football.
"We had enough chances to have won it comfortably I think, but we weren't ruthless in either box.
"But I am frustrated and I understand the fans' frustrations."
