Southend United 0-0 Plymouth Argyle

Daniel Bentley
Daniel Bentley has kept a clean sheet in three consecutive home League Two games for Southend

Southend United extended their unbeaten run to five games in League Two with a goalless draw against Plymouth.

Ryan Leonard went close early on for Southend but his driven effort went narrowly over the bar.

Plymouth's best chance of the first half fell to Lewis Alessandra, but his low shot was outstandingly saved by the legs of Southend keeper Daniel Bentley.

Tom Flanagan and Reuben Reid hit the bar in quick succession late on for Plymouth as the game ended in a draw.

Southend, who have now drawn their last three home games in League Two 0-0, remain in sixth place, while Plymouth are two points behind in seventh position.
