ARGYLE'S youngsters go into next Saturday's visit of Forest Green Rovers looking to end a run of five EFL Youth Alliance League games without a victory.

They were playing a very strong Portsmouth side last Saturday and the task was made harder as the visitors scored in the 10th and 30th minutes to go in at the break leading 2-0.

Argyle came more into the game after the break and were rewarded with an early goal when Jeremiah Medine was brought down in the area for Rubin Wilson to confidently convert his spot-kick.

Unfortunately, Pompey took time out from defending to make it 3-1 with a fine strike from the edge of the area. Back came Argyle, when Jarvis Cleal's corner found Wilson arriving at the near post and glancing his header home into the net.

The home side piled forward in an effort to save a point but were caught on the break five minutes from time.

Argyle: Harry Townsend, Isaac Burdon, Ollie Tomlinson, Oscar Halls, Jarvis Cleal, A Trialist (Will Jenkins-Davies 70), Charlie Miller, Jude Boyd, Jeremiah Medine, Rubin Wilson, Scott Crocker (Oscar Massey 70). Substitutes not used: Finley Craske, Tyler Coombes, Carlo Garside.
