Harrold almost doubled the advantage but his header flew wide, while Mustapha Carayol drew a save from Argyle keeper Jake Cole.

Blanchard pounced on Luke Young's low cross to earn his side a point.

Missed chances disappoint McGhee

"I'm not frustrated but I'm not happy and I'm disappointed - we never really got hold of the game.

"Regardless of how well or how badly we played, we had chances to tie the game up - ultimately that's what's cost us tonight.

"Muzzy (Mustapha Carayol) got a bit flash and just needed to put it in the net.

"He's done brilliantly at times and that's where he can improve. He's sitting in there with his head down as he knows he might have won us the game."
