Argyle edge towards safety

Plymouth eased their relegation fears with a 1-0 Devon derby win over Exeter thanks to Jason Banton's first-half winner.

Banton broke the deadlock in style in first-half stoppage time in front of 13,251, npower League Two's biggest attendance of the season.

The on-loan Crystal Palace forward took his Plymouth tally to six goals with a superb angled strike from 20 yards that flew past City number one Artur Krysiak and in off the inside of the far post.

Promotion-chasing Exeter had an ideal opportunity to take the lead in the opening minutes when Jamie Cureton beat marker Paul Wotton to a long through ball but his strike from the edge of the box flew wide.

There was little City striker Cureton - six yards out - could do about a thumping 69th minute Arron Davies' cross that flew off him and wide of the target.
