Notts County lose third game in a row as Graham Carey strikes for Plymouth Argyle

Joe Jones

Notts County fell to their third defeat in a row on Saturday as Plymouth Argyle's Graham Carey struck the only goal in their League Two fixture to secure all three points at Home Park and leave the Magpies empty-handed on the long trip back to Nottingham.

Neither team was able to muster a proper chance until around 13 minutes in, when Jason Banton’s low driven cross fell to Jon Stead, who had a pot shot, but Hartley cleared the effort off the line.

After Stead’s effort, both sides continued to go through the motions, but in the last five minutes of the half, Notts weighed in with two dangerous chances.

First Elliott Hewitt let rip with a shot that Luke McCormick had to backpedal to palm away, then Adam Campbell fired just wide of the back post following Rob Milsom’s sumptuous through ball.

The half-time whistle saw both sides go in level at the break, but just three minutes after the restart Carey pounced onto a loose ball in the box and drilled past Roy Carroll to put the Pilgrims ahead.

Notts countered through a curling effort from Stead that sailed over the bar, before Oscar Threlkeld had a glorious opportunity to make it 2-0 to Plymouth, but scuffed his shot wide.

Just before the hour Notts were in panic mode again after losing possession and allowing Craig Tanner to break quickly, but Carroll dived to his left and made the save.

At the other end, Blair Adams forced a great save from McCormick after a pull-back by Ronan Murray, but despite two corners, his side was unable to make anything of it.

Despite seven minutes of injury time at the end of the game, Plymouth were able to hold onto the win and secure all three points.
