Wycombe Wanderers 0-2 Plymouth Argyle

Lewis Alessandra
Striker Lewis Alessandra scored his eighth league goal of the season for Plymouth

Plymouth beat Wycombe to end the Chairboys' 12-game unbeaten run.

A breakaway from a corner provided the first goal, with Lewis Alessandra running free and finishing past keeper Matt Ingram at his near post.

Plymouth's lead was soon doubled when Peter Hartley side-footed home at the back post from Bobby Reid's corner.

The Pilgrims could have scored more as Olly Lee hit the base of the post and the bar, with Reuben Reid heading over the rebound from close range.

The result sees Plymouth leapfrog Bury into the play-off places, while Wycombe move down a place to third following Shrewsbury's late win.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"We were poor tonight. We gave two goals away.

"Let's take this as a kick up the backside and react on Saturday, that's what I want.

"We aren't going to win every game, especially when we play like that.

"We had a bad day at the office, there was one or two good things in there, but not many. Not enough to make me smile tonight."
