ARGYLE endured another infuriating afternoon in the EFL Youth Alliance, going down to a solitary goal at home to Bristol Rovers.
The Pilgrims controlled possession and created the overwhelming majority of chances at Tavistock’s Langsford Park, but were hit by a visiting goal on 23 minutes and found no luck at the other end of the pitch.
It was the first effort on goal from Bristol Rovers that found the net, cutting inside for a decent finish. Prior to that, Joe Seery had released Jude Boyd on the counter-attack but he was shepherded away from danger.
Klaidi Lolos had a shot whistle past the post a minute before the goal and the second-half was all Argyle. Lolos again went close with a nice shot on the turn following a cross from Isaac Burdon.
Rubin Wilson and Boyd had opportunities, as well as a strong penalty claim turned down. To cap it all, when the Pilgrims did find the net on a rebound, Wilson was adjudged offside by the assistant referee.
Argyle: Tyler Coombes; Joe Seery, Ollie Tomlinson, Isaac Burdon, Reuben Collum (Finley Craske 80), Michael Peck, Tom Purrington, Klaidi Lolos, Andy Burn, Rio Garside, Jude Boyd (Rubin Wilson 75).
