"Overall, Plymouth can feel a little bit harshly done by that they haven't got something out of the game, that's for sure," the Blues boss said after the game at Home Park.

"I wasn't delighted with the performance, but the result was fantastic. It's never going to be easy for anyone, coming to Plymouth, especially at the moment - they're on a bit of a high.

"It's a tough, tough place. If they keep that up it's going to be difficult for any team to come here.

"The way they play epitomises their manager - up and at them - and you have to stand up and be counted. We stood up and were counted, and a little bit of quality in the end, a fantastic header, has won us the game.

"Maik Taylor was exceptional. His handling, the way he took the ball on crosses, and his saves were terrific. He's an international goalkeeper and, today, you can see why."
