Wigan move five points clear at top of League One after Plymouth victory

Will Grigg, Gavin Massey and Dan Burn were on target for League One leaders Wigan Athletic as they ended Plymouth's eight-match unbeaten run with a 3-1 comeback win at Home Park.
Plymouth took a 27th-minute penalty lead through goal-scoring playmaker Graham Carey.
Carey had been fouled by Chey Dunkley cutting in from the left after fellow midfielder David Fox had found him with a superb cross-field ball.
Argyle's joy was relatively short-lived as Wigan levelled in their next attack, Nathan Byrne crossing from the right and Grigg sliding in to convert and restore parity on 29 minutes.
In first-half stoppage-time, Wigan countered at pace from their own half through Max Power in midfield and his ball through to Massey was turned in past a diving Remi Matthews and into the corner.
Power provided the cross - from a 69th-minute corner - which towering central defender Burn headed home to make it 3-1.
Carey nearly scored with his 47th-minute free-kick which Wigan's goalkeeper Christian Walton had to punch away as the visitors claimed maximum points to move five clear at the top.
