Plymouth rally to beat Shrewsbury

Plymouth impressively came from behind to beat Shrewsbury 2-1 as they became only the second visiting team to pick up three points at the Montgomery Waters Meadow this season.
Carlton Morris gave high-flying Shrewsbury the lead but Jamie Ness pulled Plymouth level before Zak Vyner grabbed a second-half winner.
The Pilgrims have now lost just one of their last 12 League One matches as they continue to move in the right direction.
Shrewsbury started brightly and took the lead in the sixth minute as Morris, the on loan Norwich striker, tapped home a Max Lowe cross from the left following neat approach play from Jon Nolan and Alex Rodman.
Plymouth responded well and were awarded a 19th minute penalty after Antoni Sarcevic went down in the box, but Shrewsbury goalkeeper Craig MaGillivray made an excellent save, diving low to his left to keep out Graham Carey's well struck spot kick.
The visitors pulled level eight minutes later as Ness burst into the box after being picked out by Ruben Lameiras and produced a cool finish.
Plymouth moved ahead in the 62nd minute as central defender Vyner, on loan from Bristol City, turned the ball in from close range after Shrewsbury were unable to clear a Carey corner.
Remi Matthews preserved Plymouth's advantage with a fine save from a Nathan Thomas header.
