Carl Fletcher's 20-yard stunner in injury time helped Plymouth to only their fifth home league win of the season against 10-man Bristol City.The Pilgrims made hard work of it, though, despite taking a two-goal lead through Chris Clark's volley and Bradley Wright-Phillips' overhead kick. [LNB]Nicky Maynard got the Robins back into it with two clever finishes, but Jamal Campbell-Ryce saw red for two bookings. [LNB]And Fletcher took advantage with a firm finish in stoppage time to win it. [LNB][LNB]Plymouth manager Paul Mariner: "I don't like to single players out but that was a very important goal and it was a lot more difficult to score than it looked. [LNB]"It was under his body when the ball broke to him and yet he has drilled it right into the corner of the goal. [LNB]"It was a brilliant finish and worthy of winning any match - and you could see how much it meant to him." [LNB]Bristol City manager Gary Johnson:"It was a soul destroying way to lose really, especially after we had got back into it. [LNB]"We have done it again and given away another late goal but we didn't start that well, so that was disappointing. [LNB]"We came out fighting in the second half, gave it a go and the momentum was with us, we got it to 2-2 but in the end we have lost three points."
