Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher was pleased to see the hours spent on the training ground finally pay off as his side breezed past Barnet 4-1.
The Pilgrims dominated from set-pieces at Underhill, with Maxime Blanchard and Paris Cowan-Hall both netting from headers, while further goals from Rhys Griffiths and Luke Young settled matters.
While the defeat left Barnet seven points short of safety, Plymouth moved up to 18th after recording back-to-back wins for the first time under Fletcher.
He said: "I'm really pleased. We got a couple of early goals and I think that apart from a 20-25 minute spell at the end of the first half, I felt we were in full control of the game.
"I was really pleased and it was great to score four goals away from home. I thought we coped well second half, especially with the slope.
"I was delighted for Maxime. We work quite hard on our set-pieces and probably haven't scored the goals we would have liked. I'm delighted for him and delighted for the team because they work so hard. He's only 5ft 11in but he'll tell you he's 6ft 1in, but you can see how many headers he does win. To be honest, he was so surprised he scored that I thought he was going to collapse afterwards."
