Match ends, Plymouth Argyle 3, Stevenage 2.
Plymouth Argyle remain top of League Two after a narrow win over Stevenage.
The hosts took an early lead when Carl McHugh headed home from a Jake Jervis corner after three minutes before Charlie Lee levelled with a shot at the far post after six minutes.
Jervis crossed for Gregg Wylde to head home and McHugh set up Craig Tanner to score from 18 yards and make it 3-1 at the break.
Lee slid in to score his second but the Pilgrims held on for the win.
Stevenage manager Teddy Sheringham told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"The desire was there, but once Plymouth went 3-1 up we just gave ourselves an uphill battle.
"We need to wise up in the future, and make sure we are more clinical in all areas from the first to the last whistle.
"The way the team have been playing, I may be looking at adding eight or nine players at this rate."
