Plymouth Argyle have been dumped out of another competition on penalties.

Carl Fletcher's side went down three-one to Oxford in the football league trophy area quarter final.

For the second time this season, Argyle exited a cup competition without having lost the game going out, as they had done at Burnley, after a penalty shoot-out.

Their record of 0 for 2 from spot-kicks this season was a perfect reflection of the club’s miserable record in sudden-death denouements: in history, they are 1 for 7, their solitary success coming 14 years ago in an FA Cup tie at Kidderminster.

In the game proper against Oxford, the Pilgrims took the lead midway through the first half when Alex MacDonald, playing the final game of his loan spell from Burnley, fired home a 30-yard free-kick.

Argyle were good value for their lead, but surrendered the advantage just after the hour when Oxford substitute James Constable headed home.

They ended the 90 minutes level on goals, but down by one on bodies after Durrell Berry was dismissed late on when he picked up the second of two yellow cards.

You can hear boss Carl Fletcher's thoughts here...
