Guy Madjo’s first goal for Plymouth Argyle earned the Pilgrims’ a 1-1 draw on their first visit to Adams Park in nine years.

Having struggled to gain an early foothold on the game, Argyle went behind as early as the 12th minute when Matt McClure beat Cole to a deep cross to nod home.

For the rest of the half, the Pilgrims looks hungry and missed several opportunities to level proceedings against Wycombe and their new manager.

But it took just five second-half minutes for Argyle to restore parity when Madjo stooped to meet a majestic Alex MacDonald delivery.

Argyle manager Carl Fletcher was clearly not content to settle for the point, though, and introduced three attacking substitutions.

From there on in, it was exciting stuff as Argyle searched for the winner, coming closest deep into stoppage time when Conor Hourihane fired a trademark drive against the crossbar.

Boss Carl Fletcher said: "They worked hard. The lads put in a real good shift in a real tough game with everything going on around the Wycombe side. They were dogged. We can always be better but we'll take the point at the end of it."

The Pilgrims have now lost just once in the last seven games and will take confidence into the match with Wimbledon at Home Park on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Truro City's players have agreed to stay with the side until next Thursday, giving the struggling side more time to find a buyer.

The side beat Bath 2-1 on Tuesday night.
