Plymouth Grab Late Draw with Bristol Rovers
7:01am 21st March 2012
Argyle's love affair with the French may have found a new heart-throb after defender Maxime Blanchard stole a point with a late equaliser to earn the Pilgrims another point in their mission to stay in the Football League.
The Pilgrims' search for their first back-to-back win since last April - and, with it, some relief from their relegation troubles - was, however, thwarted by Matt Harrold.
The Rovers striker, who had already scored twice against the Pilgrims this year, nodded home a 14th-minute corner by Pirate captain Matt Gill to give his team a lead which, for a long time looked like being decisive.
Despite the Argyle fightback, and although results elsewhere mean there is still plenty to fight for, with eight npower League 2 games to go, Argyle are not yet in a position where they want to be.
One way or another, it is going to be an uncomfortable seven weeks for those with the Pilgrims' well-being in their heart.
Boss Carl Fletcher said, "We'll work as hard as we can and give 100%. We haven't got rose-tinted glasses on and think it's going to be perfect every time. All that gets you through in the end is hard work and a bit of desire. Worst ways, we'll do that and, best ways, we'll make 400 passes and score 27 goals."7:01am 21st March 2012
