Report: Plymouth Argyle U23s 2-2 City U23s

Goals from Mo Eisa and Tom Richards earned City a share of the spoils in a 2-2 away draw to Plymouth Argyle.

Luke Williams' side twice fought from behind in the Premier League Cup clash.

The match was a chance for Liam Walsh to get important minutes under his belt as he returns from a torn knee injury. Eisa, Marley Watkins and Hakeeb Adelakun were also among the first-team squad to get a run out.

The home side were on top in the early stages but couldn't find the finish. Eisa saw a shot deflected over the bar for the visitors but just before half-time the deadlock was broken at the other end. It came courtesy of Tom Purrington who was on hand to convert a cross past Will Buse.

But the Robins were level within ten minutes of the second half. The Pilgrims were unable to deal with a hopeful lump downfield and a defensive mixup allowed Eisa in to slot home.

City were playing with a higher tempo but almost fell behind almost immediately when a deep, angled cross had to be diverted away from a waiting Plymouth attacker at the far post. However, the host's lead was restored in the 72nd minute, as they made the most of pinball in the City penalty area, Alex Battle eventually stroking the ball over the line.

But there would be more drama ten minutes later with Richards netting to save Williams' side a point. He made the most of another defensive howler, with the Pilgrims allowing the ball to bounce in a dangerous area, before he put the ball beyond the Argyle keeper.

City, now unbeaten in three matches, return to action in the Professional Development League when they travel to face QPR next Monday (February 18th, 1pm KO).

City: Buse, Turner-Williams, Soady (C Pearson), Watkins, H Smith (c), Ali, Richards, Walsh, Eisa, Rees (Towler), Adelakun. Subs: Sainsbury, Sam Pearson, Bell.
