Accrington Stanley 1-0 Plymouth Argyle

Accrington continued their 100% start under new manager John Coleman and claimed their fourth win in five matches by beating Plymouth.

Kal Naismith scored the game's only goal when Josh Windass found the winger to the right of the area and his tame shot beat Luke McCormick.

Plymouth wasted several chances as they tried desperately to level the match.

With four minutes to go, Kelvin Mellor's run and shot ended with Nicky Hunt hacking the ball off the line.
