Lewis Alessandra rescued a point for Plymouth Argyle against Mansfield with a 96th-minute equaliser.

In an uneventful first half, Luke Young fired a free-kick over the crossbar before shooting at keeper Alan Marriot.

Argyle lost goalkeeper Luke McCormick to a hand injury in the second half and his successor Jake Cole was beaten when Matt Rhead fired home.

But Alessandra converted Nathan Thomas's cross late in stoppage time to earn the hosts a draw.
