Tom Parkes drilled home an equaliser to earn struggling Bristol Rovers a welcome point at Plymouth.

Argyle's Guy Madjo hit the crossbar early on before they took the lead in spectacular fashion when Conor Hourihane rifled home the opener from 30 yards.

Rovers hit back when Parkes found the net with a shot from the left.

And the visitors were denied victory when Robbie Williams blocked David Clarkson's goal-bound effort.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee told BBC Radio Bristol:

"I went in at half-time and I was enraged, and I'm not often like that.

"For some reason we played at around 80% and we weren't flat-out.

"When they came in to the dressing room none of them were dying for a break - they weren't exhausted.

"I demanded that they upped the tempo. They did and they thoroughly deserved to get at least a draw."
