Plymouth Argyle boss Carl Fletcher says he is proud of his side after their 1-1 draw with high-flying Crawley.

The point saw the Pilgrims climb out of the League Two relegation zone and stopped Crawley going top of the table.

"It's pleasing for us, every point's vital at the minute and to take one away from the teams that are towards the top of the league is a real bonus.

"In terms of their effort and desire from the lads I'm really proud of them," Fletcher told BBC Radio Devon.

"It was a scrappy game, a horrible game, but we knew it was going to be like that.

"Crawley are good side and they're up at the top of the table on merit."

But Fletcher says he was pleased with how his team held out and created a last-minute goal for defender Max Blanchard.

"From our point of view there are a lot of positives from the game, the pleasing thing for us is that after conceding we didn't concede a second.

"Towards the end you stay in the game and you get that chance and you get something out of it and I'm delighted with the point.

"I'm really pleased at the way they really dug in and ground a result out," Fletcher added.
