Match ends, Plymouth Argyle 2, Mansfield Town 1.
Plymouth Argyle moved into the League Two play-off places after beating Mansfield at Home Park, who dropped towards the relegation zone.
Anthony O'Connor gave the hosts the perfect start with a looping header after just two minutes.
And Argyle doubled their lead when Carl McHugh nodded home just after the hour.
Vadaine Oliver's acrobatic goal pulled one back immediately, but the Stags are now two places above the bottom two.
