Plymouth Argyle 5-0 Morecambe

Plymouth made it three wins in a row to maintain their League Two play-off push with a thumping win over Morecambe.

Durrell Berry began the rout firing in on five minutes after Shrimps keeper Barry Roche failed to hold Matt Parson's fierce drive.

Striker Lewis Alessandra doubled the lead before Curtis Nelson headed in a third from a corner after the break.

Substitute Andres Gurrieri finished off a sweeping move on 87 minutes before Alessandra got his second at the death.
