Bristol City 0 Argyle 0

Second Draw in the Premier League Cup

10 November 2018

A VERY young Argyle side secured a second successive 0-0 draw in the Premier League Cup at Bristol City on Friday evening, following on from our stalemate with Derby County at Home Park last month.

Alex Fletcher had a great chance inside three minutes but denied by a fine block from Alhaji Sesay before Michael Cooper saved from Sam Pearson at the other end. 

The game settled into a quiet period, with Cooper producing a couple of routine blocks after the half-hour. Argyle then threatened just before half-time, with Dan Rooney firing inches wide from a strong break.

It remained a tight affair through the second half, although a delicious free-kick from Alex Battle needed tipping over by Sesay. 

Bleak weather hardly helped matters but still a good result for the Pilgrims and we move on to an away tie at Aston Villa on November 30 for our next game in the Premier League Cup.

Argyle: Michael Cooper; Ollie Tomlinson, Jordan Bentley, Michael Peck, Ryan Law, Dan Rooney, Adam Randell, Rio Garside, Alex Battle, Alex Fletcher, Aaron Goulty (Klaidi Lolos 80). Substitutes (not used): Harry Townsend, Joe Seery, Jude Boyd, Reuben Collum.
