Plymouth's Unbeaten Run Ended

Two goals inside seven minutes were enough to stump Plymouth Argyle in their match against Torquay.

It ended 2-1 to the Gulls and brings to an end the Pilgrims unbeaten run.

Some of the younger Torquay United players' parents, never mind the players, were not born the last time - the only time before this winter - that the Gulls completed a league double over Argyle.

The current crop of Yellows took their place alongside the early 1970s generation with a victory that franked the 3-1 beating of the Pilgrims at Plainmoor in November.

Two second-half goals inside seven minutes from Billy Bodin, in the last game of his loan spell from Swindon, and captain Lee Mansell gave the Gulls an advantage they never relinquished despite a spirited late revival from a previously lacklustre Pilgrims.

Luke Young, with his debut goal for the club, reduced the deficit and heralded a late surge from Argyle, who were unable to conjure up an equaliser to extend their unbeaten run into the new year and to a sixth game.

Pilgrims boss said Carl Fletcher, "We are obviously disappointed to lose at home in a derby in front of such a big crowd but there are a lot of positives."
