Plymouth Argyle 1-0 Accrington Stanley

Reuben Reid
Reuben Reid missed the start of pre-season after having surgery on a foot injury in the summer

Reuben Reid got his fourth goal in four games to leave Plymouth Argyle three points clear at the top of League Two after a 1-0 win over Accrington.

The striker volleyed in the only goal after the visitors failed to clear Graham Carey's free-kick.

But Argyle supporters were left to worry about the striker's fitness as he hobbled off 10 minutes after scoring.

Stanley's Sean McConville twice hit the frame of the goal while also being denied by three Luke McCormick saves.

The win was Argyle's eighth in 11 League Two games while Accrington slip to sixth place in the division following their second loss in three games.
