Argyle Out of Drop Zone

Argyle Out of Drop Zone

Plymouth Argyle are hoping to be out of the relegation zone for good.

They have climbed out of the bottom two after grabbing a point from a goaless draw against Barnet at Home Park.

As any Argyle fan of recent standing knows, every point is a prisoner and this one is safely behind bars.

Given results elsewhere, another two would have made it a sweet Valentine's Day, and Argyle fans will point to a remarkable miss just before half-time by Alex MacDonald as the moment their hearts were broken.

That would be extremely harsh on the young Scot, who ran his legs off in the cause and was deservedly the sponsors' man of the match.

It also ignores that fact that the Pilgrims were lucky not suffer heartache as Barnet twice hit the woodwork and made Jake Cole the busier of the two goalkeepers.

Boss Carl Fletcher said, "I think whoever got the first goal would have won the game probably. So pleased with a clean sheet and the lads' work rate and effort. We could have been a little bit better in possession but it's something to improve on. I think you have to start somewhere and a clean sheet isn't a bad place to start."
