Helpless bystander as Riley's cheeky free-kick whizzed past him, but was at his best when brilliantly clawing away Cooper's long-range effort late on, his only real save of the afternoon. Quick and decisive off his line... 7.5

Accomplished display. Plymouth regularly threatened on his side, especially when Mayor drifted over, but stood strong and rarely gave Argyle a free cross into the box. Created the space for Hoskins to set up the third goal... 8

Captain was a warrior in the heart of defence. His aggressive, front-foot defending typified the team's performance as Taylor wasn't given a sniff of goal. Won header after header and made important clearances under pressure... 8
