LEAGUE ONE Plymouth Argyle 2 Morecambe 1

Steven Schumacher’s Plymouth Argyle returned to winning ways and the League One summit thanks to a 2-1 home win over Derek Adams’ basement side Morecambe.

Striker Niall Ennis got the 70th minute opener, cleverly clipping the ball home at the near post from substitute Ryan Hardie’s pacy cross from the left.

Hardie’s 62nd minute introduction made all the difference to Argyle’s attack.

The Scottish ace came within a whisker of making it 2-0 on 77 minutes but his deft touch to beat Morecambe keeper Connor Ripley, from Sam Cosgrove’s first time cross, skipped past the far post.

It didn’t take long for Cosgrove – on loan from Birmingham City – to make it 2-0.

He only needed one touch to tuck away Joe Edwards’ measured pass from 12 yards out for the winner.

It was a crucial goal as Anthony O’Connor cut in from the right to hammer the ball past Michael Cooper in the home goal in the first minute of stoppage time.

Argyle should have taken the lead on 42 minutes but Ripley dived to his left to save Morgan Whittaker’s penalty following a foul on Edwards.
