Plymouth Argyle moved up to eighth in Division Three with a 3-1 success over Swansea.

Argyle’s victory was the first home win and came after a stylish first-half performance as they went two goals in front.

They took a 14th-minute lead through Paul Wooton from the penalty spot, after striker Micky Evans had been fouled by Kris O’Leary.

Nicky Banger, making his first start after joining Plymouth on a three-month contract, increased the home side’s lead just before half time.

A superb cross from man-of-the-match Martin Phillips was headed on by Banger and into the far corner.

Phillips capped his man-of-the-match performance in the 61st minute when he finished from close range after Evans had headed on Wooton’s free-kick.

Swansea hit back in the 79th minute when Mamady Sidibe pounced on a mistake in the home defence.

He missed a golden opportunity to double his tally a minute later when he glanced a Matthew Bound cross just wide.
