FT Plymouth 0 Latics 2.

Latics out of the League One relegation zone for the first time since Halloween.

Dan Gardner and Thelo Aasgaard for Gavin Massey and Viv Solomon-Otabor.

Corey Whelan for Lee Evans, eight minutes to go.

Substitute Adam Lewis curls a free-kick round the Latics wall and against the outside of the post...THIRD time Plymouth have hit the woodwork tonight.

Jamie Jones required to make a couple of really important saves to keep Latics in front.

Joe Dodoo and Will Keane for Callum Lang and Jamie Proctor.

HT Pasties 0 Pies 2.

So far, so good for Latics. More of the same please.

Goal 2-0 Latics, Tendayi Darikwa cross, Curtis Tilt header, keeper has no chance, get in!

Incredible 10 seconds of action...Tilt deflects the ball on to his own post, then clears off his own line, Jones makes a great save and Ennis following up misses an open goal...but Latics survive!

Plymouth hit the bar now... Luke Jephcott with the strike...open first 20 here!

So close to 2-0 Latics...Callum Lang clean through, shot is saved by the legs of the goalie, rebound out to Viv Solomon-Otabor, who fires just over the top.

Only a second start in five months for Lee Evans tonight, and no surprise as his first real challenge is mistimed and he’s in the book.

Goal 1-0 Latics, Gavin Massey cross, Viv Solomon-Otabor with a smashing finish, get in!

First chance for Latics, Callum Lang volleys off target.

Plymouth claiming an early penalty after Tendayi Darikwa slides into a challenge...Plymouth man goes down and referee gives a goal kick for some reason...if Darikwa didn’t touch the ball surely should have been a penalty...or a yellow card? Anyway, no harm done.
