Argyle Youth 2 Forest Green 2
ARGYLE came back from two goals down to preserve their unbeaten start to this season's EFL Merit League Two campaign.
The Pilgrims started the game well as they went in search of their third consecutive victory and Tom Purrington went very close to opening their account but his close-range header flew narrowly wide.
Argyle had the majority of the possession but found themselves a goal behind as the visitors scored with their very first attack on 20 minutes. Worse was to come as the Pilgrim's defence failed to clear their lines, allowing their opponents to go in at the break leading 2-0.
Argyle started the second half in a positive mood with Klaidi Lolos, Purrington and Rubin Wilson all going close before Aaron Goulty turned well on the edge of the box to fire inside the Forest Green near post on the hour.
The Pilgrims surged forward with Lolos going close and then the Greek Youth International went on a mazy run in the Rovers box before being scythed down, and he proceeded to put his side back on level terms from the resultant penalty.
“The game could have gone either way after that goal so perhaps the result was a fair one,” admitted Argyle Academy Director Kevin Hodges.
“It was good to see the lads show their ability to fight back and deservedly get something out of the game.”
