Hartlepool United 1 Plymouth Argyle 0
A STUNNING individual effort from Luke James earned ten-man Hartlepool United a 1-0 win over Plymouth - their fourth victory in a row.
Pools won despite having Jack Compton sent off after just 24 minutes.
They were, however, indebted to goalkeeper Scott Flinders for a string of fine stops to keep them in the game.
Compton was dismissed for a studs up challenge on Jamie Reckford, and referee Scott Mathieson showed an instant red card.
Flinders made two key saves low at his near post after a free kick was blocked and then found its way through to the six-yard box.
The Pilgrims started the second-half well, Flinders making two early saves, and Pools were flat before they took the lead on 55 minutes.
Andy Monkhouse flicked on and James tore past Neale Trotman on the edge of the area and clipped a low, angled finish across keeper Luke McCormick.
Flinders saved instantly from Conor Hourihane and from then on, Pools defended superbly.
The keeper kept out more efforts from Luke Young, Trotman and Reuben Reid as they saw the game out.
