Port Vale boss Micky Adams praised forwards Ashley Vincent and Jennison Myrie-Williams following their second-half goals in the 3-1 npower League Two comeback win at Plymouth.
High-flying Vale trailed 1-0 at half-time to an 18th-minute Robbie Williams rocket from 30 yards.
Vincent missed a golden opportunity to level in the 46th minute but then won a penalty, converted by Myrie-Williams in the 66th minute, and scored nine minutes later to put Vale 2-1 up.
Substitute Ben Williams capped the victory three minutes later.
"Ashley and Jennison were outstanding in the second half and Plymouth couldn't live with them," Adams said.
"I didn't think we got going first half, we looked a bit tired and lethargic. They had done their homework on us to be fair to them and I thought they were deservedly 1-0 up at half-time.
"But I knew that we could get better - and so it proved. There were no histrionics in the dressing room at half-time, we were nice and calm.
"What pleased me most was the tempo we played with in the second half and the substitutes that came on because they all made an impact."
Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher felt his side deserved to take something from the game, saying: "I feel a bit shell-shocked, wondering how we lost that one.
"In the first half we controlled the game, played some really good stuff and got a deserved lead. We eased off a little bit at the end of the first half but then we tried to push on from there in the second and got sucker-punched."
