Torquay United 1-1 Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth extended their unbeaten run to eight matches but had to settle for a draw against struggling Torquay in the Devon derby.

It was the Gulls who took the lead when Elliot Benyon pounced from six yards after Luke McCormick's save.

But it took Argyle just three minutes to draw level as Reuben Reid smashed in from the spot after Nathan Craig handled Luke Young's free-kick.

And Plymouth almost won it when Caolan Lavery's header came back off the post.

But 23rd-placed Torquay held on to claim a point, meaning Argyle now sit 14th in League Two.
