Plymouth Argyle 1-1 Bristol Rovers

Ellis Harrison
Ellis Harrison's penalty was Rovers' first goal in four matches

Bristol Rovers came away from high-flying Plymouth Argyle with a point after Ellis Harrison's late penalty.

Graham Carey and Hiram Boateng had decent early chances for Argyle while Matty Taylor went close for Rovers.

Jake Jervis slotted home Gregg Wylde's cross for an 85th-minute opener.

But Harrison was brought down by Luke McCormick for a stoppage time penalty which he converted before the striker had a close-range header well saved by McCormick a few minutes later.
