Plymouth Argyle avoid relegation after a draw against Oxford.

The 1-1 scoreline was enough for the Pilgrims to guarantee their place in the Football League.

Manager Carl Fletcher admits it has been a rollercoaster season:

"You know, a mixture of emotions really. Obviously relieved, that we've got where we have. You know, I'm immensely proud of the lads in the changing room and what they've done in really, really tough circumstances. I'm honoured to be their manager.

"At the start of the season, you struggled to call us a football club with the money situation and, you know, this club's pulled itself back around. It was massive for us to stay in this division and the pressure that we've had on us all year has been huge."
