Plymouth Argyle 1-1 Cheltenham Town

Substitute Luke Young struck with a late free-kick to earn Plymouth a point against Cheltenham in League Two.

Argyle keeper Luke McCormick kept his side in the match in the first half, saving Kemar Roofe's volley and Curtis Nelson's attempted clearance.

But McCormick was beaten when Byron Harrison bagged his 10th goal of the season thanks to a deflection.

Argyle changed their formation and personnel and got their reward when Young fired in from 20 yards out.

Post-match: Cheltenham boss Yates

"We're a bit disappointed, but on the back of a couple ogf defeats we've had, it was a much improved performance.

"We worked hard, and if we continue to do that then we've got a chance because we've got some good players.

"I thought we were excellent in the second half and we were unlucky not to take three points back on the bus with us."
