Paul Wotton was the star of the show as Plymouth earned their first Championship victory at the expense of 10-man Brighton.
Plymouth got their first win in The Championship as they won the battle of the two promoted clubs at The Withdean Stadium.
Bobby Williamson's side dominated throughout as they followed up their opening day draw with Millwall with a second consecutive clean sheet, condemning Brighton to a second defeat in the process.
Captain Paul Wotton was at the heart of the action for Argyle, playing a major part in the first goal after 11 minutes and then scoring the second on the stroke of half time.
Wotton's long range shot was too hot for keeper Michel Kuipers to hold and as Brighton defender Danny Cullip attempted to clear he could only head the ball against the post and just over the line.
Brighton were dead and buried by the interval as Daniel Harding pulled down Marino Keith in the area and was shown a second yellow card
Wotton made no mistake from the penalty spot, cracking Plymouth's second goal high into the net.
The Plymouth skipper was then denied a second goal early in the second half when Kuipers pushed away another long range shot.
