The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Gary Stone­house

PLYMOUTH Ar­gyle boss Derek Adams was left burst­ing with pride at his young charges af­ter the Pil­grims main­tained their five-point lead at the top of League Two with vic­tory at York.

The ta­ble-top­pers had a two-goal ad­van­tage at the break thanks to goals from Jake Jervis and Gra­ham Carey – his eighth of the sea­son – in a fly­ing first-half per­for­mance.

And de­spite con­ced­ing a late goal from Ben God­frey, Adams could not hide his plea­sure at full time.

“For the first 20 min­utes we were un­be­liev­able,” he said.

“The way we went at them and the pres­sure we put them un­der, we could have got four or five.

“The way we played and passed the ball, we were ab­so­lutely ter­rific.

Plymouth were con­tent to sit back and use the pace of their at­tack­ers on the counter, and this tac­tic paid off when they dou­bled their lead mo­ments be­fore half time in a move started and fin­ished by Carey.

The mid­fielder won the ball and played a de­light­ful pass to Gregg Wylde down the left, the winger rac­ing past full-back Ed­die Nolan be­fore cut­ting the ball back to Carey to smash home from the edge of the area.

For­mer Manch­ester United and Mid­dles­brough man – and York coach – Jonathan Green­ing was in­tro­duced by Jackie McNa­mara at the break, but he was un­able to spark a come­back.

Things went from bad to worse for the home side as de­fender Dave Win­field was stretchered from the field af­ter
