MORECAMBE 2 - 3 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

Plymouth battled back from two goals down to beat Morecambe with three goals in 18 second-half minutes.

The home side scored an early goal through Jack Redshaw, and it was 2-0 after just a few minutes of the second half. Argyle's Durrell Berry fouled Richard Brodie in the area, and the substitute - who came on for Redshaw at half-time - got up to take the resulting penalty himself.

Ross Jenkins began Argyle's remarkable comeback in the 72nd minute with a goal on his debut. Then with ten minutes left on the clock, Izak Reid handled Berry's cross inside the box, and Warren Feeney levelled from the spot.

And four minutes from time, the Pilgrims were awarded their second penalty - the third of the match - when Paris Cowan-Hall was brought down by Nick Fenton. Feeney coolly finished to earn Argyle all three points.

SOUTHEND UNITED 2 - 1 EXETER CITY

Exeter's six game unbeaten run is over after they conceded two late goals at Roots Hall.

Scot Bennett had given the Grecians the lead six minutes into the second half.

Southend manager Paul Sturrock introduced substitute Barry Corr. The big striker was making his comeback after an 18 month lay-off. He pulled the home side level on 77 minutes before Freddy Eastwood headed past Artur Krysiak two minutes from time.

TORQUAY UNITED 1 - 1 BURTON ALBION

Torquay United were denied three points by a late Burton equaliser.

Rene Howe put the Gulls ahead, converting Nathan Craig's deflected cross.

The visitors had the better chances in the game. They hit the woodwork twice, and Michael Poke made several good saves.

But Poke could do nothing about Burton's 89th minute leveller. Zander Diamond's shot rebounded back off the post for Calvin Zola to stab home from two yards out.

  • LEAGUE ONE

YEOVIL TOWN 0 - 1 SHEFFIELD UNITED

Yeovil Town lost for the fourth successive match after going down 1-0 at home to Sheffield United.

Neill Collins scored the only goal of the game ten minutes into the second half - heading in Paul Gallacher's corner.

Yeovil tried to find a way back into the game. Dominic Blizzard went close with a cross-shot and Jamie McAllister - back in the side after suspension - saw his free-kick fly wide.
