Plymouth Argyle's winning run comes to an end at Cheltenham
PLYMOUTH Argyle's three-game winning run came to an end last night when they were beaten 2-1 by Cheltenham at Whaddon Road.
The Pilgrims had looked on course for another victory when Irishman Conor Hourihane gave them a 30th-minute lead.
But Cheltenham levelled seven minutes later with a header from Steve Elliott before Kaid Mohamed scored another headed goal in the second half to win the game for his side.
Argyle, who had won their last two league games and progressed in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, left Whaddon Road feeling hard done by.

They dominated large spells of the game and had two second half penalty shouts turned down, while Alex MacDonald missed a great chance to level the match late on after Luke Young had hit the post.
In the end, though, Argyle were left to rue their poor defending.
Argyle boss Carl Fletcher said afterwards: "I'm really disappointed. I thought we did great. We totally dominated the second half and didn't look in any trouble.
"We stuck to our job, kept the ball down and made numerous chances. I think we could have had two penalties.
"The first one on Guy Madjo was a stonewaller. That's a pen and a sending-off. But that's the way it goes.
"The lads will be disappointed now but the way they played was a joy to watch."
