ARGYLE beat Southend in the first of this week's clashes between the two sides, emerging 3-1 winners in a Central League game at Home Park.
Luke Jephcott struck inside two minutes for the Pilgrims, then doubled the Greens' lead midway through the half. Southend quickly got a goal back, and although the Shrimpers struck the bar in the second half, Argyle were good value for their victory.
Alex Fletcher added a third with ten minutes to go, finishing well after good work from Alex Battle.
Argyle: Michael Cooper; Harry Hodges, Harry Downing, Elliott Crawford, Ryan Law; Dan Rooney, Matt Ward; Billy Craske, Alex Battle, Luke Jephcott; Alex Fletcher.
