Carl Cort and Dean Sturridge gave Wolves victory over Plymouth.Substitute Dean Sturridge struck five minutes from time to earn 10-man Wolves a 2-1 victory at Plymouth - their second away win in a week.
The defeat was Plymouth's second at Home Park in five days, after Leeds ended their 22-match unbeaten home run on Tuesday.
Argyle had dominated the opening period without making a breakthrough, but when they finally went in front after 62 minutes it looked like they would get back to winning ways.
But Carl Cort equalised for the visitors from the penalty spot and despite the dismissal of Kevin Cooper for a bad tackle on Peter Gilbert, Sturridge popped up to snatch all three points.
David Norris and David Friio went closest for Plymouth before the break, and it was Friio who gave them the lead just after the hour.
The French midfielder beat Paul Jones with a diving header after beating two Wolves defenders to a cross from Paul Wotton.
Norris almost added a second when he cracked a 25-yard effort against a post before the tide turned in Wolves' favour.
Dave Jones sent on Cooper and Sturridge in a bid to spice up his attack and Cooper was quickly into the action when he was brought down by Gilbert.
Cort, who has taken over penalty-taking duties after two misses from Kenny Miller, calmly rolled the ball past Romain Larrieu.
Then, following Cooper's red card, Cort fed Sturridge who fired an unstoppable shot beyond the Pilgrims keeper.
