Loan Watch: Vyner helps Pilgrams beat Rovers

Zak Vyner’s Plymouth Argyle enjoyed the South West spoils with a topsy-turvy 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers.

The Pilgrims are now unbeaten in eight matches, with the defender playing a key role in their surge into the play-off pack.

Argyle were twice behind in the encounter but won it thanks to Graham Carey’s late penalty kick.

City’s loan trio at Cheltenham – Taylor Moore, Joe Morrell and Jake Andrews – all started in their 1-1 draw with Chesterfield.

Shawn McCoulsky was a late replacement in Newport County’s 1-1 draw with promotion-chasing Luton Town.

Connor Lemonheigh-Evans (Torquay United) and Max O’Leary (Solihull Moors) faced each other in the National League with the game ending in a 1-1 draw.

Jonny Smith was a half-time replacement for AFC Fylde, who quickly turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead against Hartlepool United. However, a late rally saw Pools score twice in the final two minutes to earn a share of the spoils.

Opi Edwards scored Bath City’s fourth and final goal in their 4-0 drubbing of Poole Town, with Antoine Semenyo also featuring.

Elsewhere, there were defeats for Aaron Parsons (Weston-super-Mare, 2-0 at Chippenham Town) and Cameron Pring (Hereford FC, 3-1 at Basingstoke).
