Wolves stunned by Argyle

Published Add your comment

Struggling Plymouth increased their hopes of survival as they recorded a shock 1-0 win at Coca-Cola Championship leaders Wolves.

Argyle got off to the perfect start as Paul Gallagher's superb overhead kick gave them a surprise lead with less than a minute on the clock.

And they held on to secure their second win in 17 matches and leave Wolves without a victory since January.

Fellow strugglers Southampton also recorded a surprise 1-0 victory over promotion-chasing Cardiff.

Southampton were gifted the lead in the 11th minute when Mark Kennedy handled in the area and David McGoldrick stepped up to convert the resulting penalty.

They remain in the relegation zone, however, following Nottingham Forest's 1-0 triumph at Reading.

Steve Coppell's third-placed team dominated the game but failed to score for a fourth consecutive game and Lewis McGugan claimed the only goal of the game after 61 minutes.

Bristol City failed to capitalise on their promotion rivals' slip-ups as they were held to a goalless draw at home by Blackpool.
