Conor Hourihane's strike gave Plymouth victory at relegation-threatened Wycombe as the Pilgrims continued their play-off push.

Plymouth keeper Jake Cole tipped Sam Wood's in-swinging corner onto the crossbar before Argyle took the lead.

The visiting captain fired home a left-footed volley after the break following Marvin McCoy's weak defensive header.

Reuben Reid could have doubled Argyle's lead but saw two fine strikes beaten away by Matt Ingram.

The win ended Wycombe's six-match unbeaten run while Plymouth are now just outside the play-off zone on goal difference after Southend's draw with Scunthorpe.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It was a poor game I thought, we didn't do enough to win it. It should have been 0-0 here tonight.

"I just said can we go up to York and win on Saturday and everyone has given me a positive yes.

"Plymouth have been free-scoring, they've been battering teams so it shows how far we've come. I'm disappointed on tonight, but I'm not down."
