Plymouth maintained top spot in Sky Bet League One with a 3-1 win over relegation-haunted Cambridge at Home Park.

Steven Schumacher’s Argyle took a 15th-minute lead through Callum Wright, who was able to choose his spot after being teed up by strike partner Ryan Hardie.

Wright, inside the box, curled the ball past Dimitar Mitov as Argyle got off to a flying start.

Cambridge levelled when Sam Smith headed back across goal and past Callum Burton from Steve Seddon’s 31st-minute cross from the left, helped on by Michael Morris’ deft flick-on.

Dominant Argyle regained the lead in the 56th minute thanks to the determined drive of skipper Joe Edwards, who managed to stay on his feet despite a trip, to poke the ball past Mitov from close range to make it 2-1.

The Greens surged further ahead in the 73th minute following a superb one-two between fit-again Norwich loanee Bali Mumba and substitute striker Niall Ennis.

Mumba cut the ball back from the left and Ennis hammered home from close range.
