Accrington Stanley 1-1 Plymouth Argyle

Tom Aldred scored a late equaliser to rescue a point for Accrington Stanley against in-form Plymouth Argyle.

Reuben Reid opened the scoring for the Pilgrims with a drilled effort into the corner of the net from the edge of the area, but Accrington fought back.

Aldred powered home Lee Molyneux's right-wing cross late on as both teams gained a valuable point.

Plymouth sit outside the play-offs on goal difference, whilst Stanley are six points clear of the relegation zone.

Accrington manager James Beattie told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"In the end, I'm delighted with a point. Both teams had chances to win it. The lads showed tremendous character and resilience and I'm really happy.

"They're a bit disappointed, which shows you how far we've come because Plymouth are on a great run."
