Ashley Hemmings scored an injury-time winner as basement club Plymouth came from behind to beat Bristol Rovers.

Rovers went ahead when striker Matt Harrold scored from the spot after being brought down by Onismor Bhasera.

Harrold scored his second two minutes later converting a Joe Anyinsah cross, before Warren Feeney's close-range effort reduced the arrears.

Nick Chadwick's low shot drew Plymouth level and Hemmings snatched a dramatic late winner on the breakaway.

The result heaps pressure on Rovers manager Paul Buckle as his side lost their 11th game of the season.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Plymouth Argyle manager Carl Fletcher told BBC Radio Devon:

"We went in and spoke to the lads and said what we needed.

"It's just pleasing they came out and took it on board and they got their rewards. I'm so proud of everyone.

"To get a second away win of the season shows great character from the lads and real desire and heart to do what's right."
