Plymouth had to settle for a two-all draw against Gillingham on Saturday.

Former Argyle defender Adam Barrett’s 89th minute goal denied the Pilgrims all three points at home to the top of the league outfit.

Barrett, who played 64 times in an 18 month stay at Home Park between 1999-2000, was on hand to head home after the Argyle had twice gone in front.

After a slow start in which neither team could fashion a chance, it was Curtis Nelson who put Argyle in front, reacting first to a deflected shot to put his side in front from an acute angle.

The lead was to last just five minutes, however, as striker Ben Strevens made the most of a bodged Chris Whelpdale effort to level proceedings.

Luke Young then looked to have won it for Argyle ten minutes from time but it was Barrett’s goal in the dying embers of the game that ensured his side travelled back to Kent with a share of the points.
