Plymouth defender Sonny Bradley scored twice as Derek Adams' side beat League One rivals Northampton Town 2-0 at Home Park.
Both Bradley goals were headers from set pieces as the hosts bounced back from Saturday's 4-0 defeat against Oxford.
At the other end, Joel Grant's powerful 12th-minute angled effort looked destined for goal but was deflected just wide by Brendon Moloney.
David Fox provided the first exquisite delivery from wide on the right some 40 yards out for unmarked Bradley to put Plymouth 1-0 up after 31 minutes.
Bradley doubled his tally stooping to head home at the far post from a Graham Carey free-kick from seven minutes after the break.
The towering central defender came close to completing his hat-trick from a Carey cross minutes later but his header ran down the outside of the side netting.
Cobblers substitute Dean Bowditch went close to coming up with a reply going into the final moments.
Chris Long missed a golden opportunity to reduce the deficit when he went through one-on-one with Argyle's on-loan Norwich City goalkeeper Remi Matthews, firing just wide.
