Plymouth Argyle 2-2 Salford City

Dom Telford's 89th-minute penalty secured a 2-2 comeback draw for Ryan Lowe's Plymouth against League Two new boys Salford at Home Park.

Ibou Touray stunned Lowe's Argyle when he rose at the far post to head home a deep cross from the right in the 79th minute to put City ahead for a second time against the run of play.

But 10 minutes later Telford restored parity from the spot after Callum McFadzean was fouled during a run into the penalty area.

City had taken a 37th-minute lead through target man Jake Beesley, who was unmarked when he headed home Richie Towell's near-post free-kick from the right.

Beesley looked set to make it three goals in two games straight after when he ran through one-on-one with Argyle keeper Alex Palmer, but the on-loan West Brom man made a superb block to keep the score down.

Plymouth playmaker Danny Mayor levelled with a superb 43rd minute strike, cutting in from the left, choosing his spot and sending a measured rising drive into the far corner out of Chris Neal's reach.

Palmer went full stretch to keep out Touary's first time effort as he met Danny Whitehead's cross with a low shot.

Argyle were the next to go close as Joe Riley's angled shot from the right smashed off the near post on 65 minutes.
