Ryan Brunt has played a key role in Plymouth's season so far

Plymouth remain second in League Two despite conceding a late equaliser away at Crawley.

The away side dominated the first half but home keeper Paul Jones parried Gregg Wylde's driven effort.

Ryan Brunt headed in Wylde's cross for his 10th goal of the season to give Argyle a deserved lead midway through the second half.

With less than 10 minutes left substitute Shamir Fenelon poked in from close range to earn Crawley a point.

Crawley Town manger Mark Yates told BBC Surrey:

"Being a goal down against a team who've won nine out of their last 13 away games, you fear the worst, but we stuck at it. We showed resolve and I think we got a deserved equaliser.

"It shows the players believe in themselves and they have a good spirit. We had to dig in and I said we were disappointed with the goal. To recover from that, we didn't come apart and concede another one.

"I thought Tom Dallison did exactly what I thought he would do. He was aggressive, strong and he's got real leadership qualities for a 19-year-old. He can really be pleased with his debut."
