Plymouth moved into the play-offs with a win over second place Chesterfield.

Reuben Reid scored both of the home side's goals, the first coming from an angled drive which bounced in off the far post.

It was cancelled out after the break when Ritchie Humphreys' shot was deflected in by Argyle midfielder Andres Gurrieri.

But Reid's solo work restored the lead shortly after when he skipped between defenders to fire home from 20 yards.

Argyle are now seventh in the League Two standings while Rochdale replaced Chesterfield at the summit following their 3-0 win over Northampton.
