Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams says Saturday's 2-0 win over Carlisle United was one of their best this season.

Ryan Brunt and Gregg Wylde were on target at Ewood Park to help move Argyle three points clear at the top of League Two.

"It was excellent from start to finish," Adams told BBC Radio Devon.

"It was an unbelievable performance, it ranks up there with one of the best performances we've had this season."

The victory was Plymouth's ninth away from Home Park this season, with the club amassing more points on their travels than on home turf.

"We've had more opportunities on goal than Carlisle, our goalkeeper hasn't had a save to make in the game and we've had other opportunities in the game," Adams said.

"We had to deal with a lot of long balls and throws ins, we knew that before the game, so we set up to deal with it and tactically it was down to perfection."

Argyle are now eight points clear of fourth-placed Portsmouth as they look to get out of the fourth tier of English football after five seasons in League Two.

"Of course we can gain promotion, there's no doubt about it. Our form tells you that." Adams said.

"The way we perform is to a very high standard and you look at the work ethic and the togetherness around the squad, we've got exceptionally talented players and we've been able to gather in 25 games 52 points."
