Reuben Reid sealed victory for Plymouth late on with his fifth goal of the season

Two goals from Reuben Reid sent Plymouth back to the top of League Two with victory at Notts County.

The striker fired Argyle into the lead when he turned and shot right-footed on the edge of the area following keeper Luke McCormick's long clearance.

Graham Burke hit a post and Alan Smith had a shot tipped over as County searched for a first-half equaliser.

Reid made the points safe late on when he slotted home inside the area after Scott Loach had saved his initial shot.

Derek Adams' side go three points clear at the top after being temporarily replaced by Portsmouth at the summit on Saturday.
