Peter Halmosi scored twice as Plymouth Argyle eased themselves firmly into fifth spot of the Championship and remain play-off contenders. Argyle had to endure pressure from Burnley for the first ten minutes, but took the lead in the 11th when a Nalis shot squirmed through Jensen's legs. 

The Clarets equalised when O'Connor glanced in following an unchallenged header from Lafferty. Argyle were not deterred by the set-back and played themselves into a half-time lead when Halmosi took advantage of penalty area pressure to stab home the second from close range. 

Burnley came out of the blocks in the second half and dominated possession without any real goal threat. However, on 76 minutes Halmosi stole the ball from Burnley right-back Harley, and was able to drill a low left foot shot below the 'keeper.
