Billy Bodin’s eighth goal of the season gave Bristol Rovers victory over League One’s bottom club Plymouth at the Memorial Stadium.The hosts took the lead when Ellis Harrison’s low cross from the right found Rory Gaffney in space inside the box and the striker fired home from 12 yards.But Argyle started the second half well and equalised when former Rovers striker Nathan Blissett found the top corner with a well-taken right-foot shot from an angle.

But Bodin hit the winner when he met Gaffney’s low cross from the left and his fierce first-time shot with his left foot gave Kyle Letheren no chance.Plymouth were reduced to 10 men two minutes later when Gary Miller was shown a straight red card for a foul on Joe Partington.Rovers created most of the chances and Letheren had to make flying saves from Liam Sercombe, twice, and Harrison, while substitute Tom Nichols also hit a post.Match report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsBristol Rovers1Slocombe22Partington6Sweeney4Lockyer3BrownBooked at 90mins14LinesBooked at 90mins7Sercombe8O ClarkeBooked at 40mins10BodinSubstituted forTelfordat 90+5’minutes30GaffneySubstituted forNicholsat 69’minutes9HarrisonBooked at 65minsSubstitutes11Nichols16Broadbent17Broom18Telford20Bola21Smith24SinclairPlymouth25Letheren2MillerBooked at 64mins4Songo’o5EdwardsBooked at 90mins3Sawyer6NessSubstituted forFoxat 76’minutes7Sarcevic10CareyBooked at 57minsSubstituted forSokolikat 69’minutes14Jervis13Blissett21WyldeSubstitutes9Ciftci11Lameiras16Grant20Sokolik24Fox27Fletcher31CooperReferee:Graham SalisburyAttendance:9,879Match StatsHome TeamBristol RoversAway TeamPlymouthPossessionHome65%Away35%ShotsHome13Away8Shots on TargetHome7Away3CornersHome11Away3FoulsHome11Away10Live TextPosted at Match ends, Bristol Rovers 2, Plymouth Argyle 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Bristol Rovers 2, Plymouth Argyle 1.Posted at 90’+6′ Foul by Ellis Harrison (Bristol Rovers).Posted at 90’+6′ Gary Sawyer (Plymouth Argyle) wins a free kick in the defensive half.SubstitutionPosted at 90’+5′ Substitution, Bristol Rovers.
