Plymouth Argyle lifted themselves out of the bottom three after a 3-1 home triumph over Queens Park Rangers.

Paul Wotton and Mathias Doumbe had The Pilgrims in control at half time before QPR grabbed a consolation through Shabazz Baidoo after Nick Chadwick had scored a third for Plymouth.

The hosts were quickly in front at Home Park when Wotton scored from the penalty spot after QPR keeper Simon Royce brought down David Norris.

Royce tried to make amends and saved from Tony Capaldi and he used his legs to keep out a Chadwick shot later in the half.

The veteran shot-stopper was a one-man barrier for much of the first half and produced a superb save to keep out Akos Buzsaky's free kick.

But before the break, Royce was beaten again when Wotton nodded down Buzsaky's corner for Doumbe to finish from close range.

Early in the second half, QPR were 3-0 down after Buzsaky's free kick was headed beyond Royce by Chadwick.

Just past the hour mark and the visitors nabbed a consolation through substitute Baidoo when he pounced on Lee Cook's corner to score.

Romain Larrieu then saved from Kevin Gallen and Gareth Ainsworth as QPR tried to put a more respectable gloss on the scoreline.
