Plymouth Argyle 1-0 Yeovil Town

Ryan Brunt
Ryan Brunt signed an 18-month deal at Home Park last January

Ryan Brunt's strike saw Plymouth Argyle beat struggling Yeovil Town and go two points clear at the top of League Two.

Argyle dominated the first half with keeper Chris Weale making a number of saves, but the Glovers came closest when Matt Dolan's effort from 25 yards struck the bar.

Plymouth took the lead when Weale parried a Craig Tanner strike to Brunt, who slotted in from close range.

The victory sees Argyle move two points clear at the top of the table.

Yeovil remain in the bottom two and are two points adrift of York City.
