Plymouth Argyle have taken a big step towards escaping relegation.

They are eight points clear of the drop zone after beating Aldershot one-nil yesterday.

Argyle took a massive, massive step towards securing their Football League survival with a gutsy win in front of a huge Bank Holiday crowd.

Alex MacDonald's 14th-minute strike might have been hugely lucky - going in with the help of a huge deflection - but who really cares?

This team of Green-shirted believers, and their equally faithful followers, deserve every bit of luck going, and, anyway, as Gary Player once observed, the harder you work, the 'luckier' you get.

It was second successive agonisingly sweet victory of the score-first-and-hang-on variety at Home Park, but we are all used to that by now.

Boss Carl Fletcher said, "I'm pleased in the lads for their commitment and hard work and what they do day in and day out. We didn't play great in terms of passing, keeping hold of possession and things like that but we don't care. Three points is the main thing."
