Plymouth Argyle 2-0 Morecambe

Graham Carey
Graham Carey previously played in Scotland for Ross County, St Mirren and Celtic

Plymouth extended their lead at the top of League Two to five points with a comfortable win over Morecambe.

Graham Carey's rasping 20-yard strike gave the home side an early lead following good play from Craig Tanner.

Tanner soon doubled Argyle's advantage with a fantastic curling shot which went in off the post.

The Shrimps' best chance of the game fell to Jamie Devitt, but his long-range shot was saved by keeper Luke McCormick as Argyle saw out the win.
