Reuben Reid scored his ninth goal of the season against Burton Albion

Reuben Reid scored his ninth goal of the season to help Plymouth Argyle draw with fifth-placed Burton Albion.

Alex MacDonald put the home side in front when he toed Stuart Beavon's cross into the bottom-left corner.

Plymouth were awarded a penalty after the break when Reid was brought down inside the box.

The striker sent Dean Lyness the wrong way to equalise but Burton came close to victory when Adam McGurk's header was well saved by Luke McCormick.

Burton caretaker Mike Whitlow told BBC Radio Derby:

"I think every single one of them lads put a shift in. They were proud to wear that shirt and they come off there having given everything, you can't ask any more from a group of players.

"Yes, there were enough chances to win the game but credit to Plymouth, they are a good team.

"John Sheridan's got them playing well and they got four lads up front in the second half away from home so it was end to end, toe to toe and we had a chance to win it ourselves."
