John Sheridan remains unbeaten as Argyle manager, but would have been disappointed not to beat relegation rivals Accrington Stanley.

The visitors had the best chance of the first half. Former Southampton and England striker James Beattie saw his header cleared off the line by Onismor Bhasera.

Bhasera almost gave the Pilgrims the lead early in the second half, but his shot was tipped around the post by Cameron Belford.

New Plymouth signing Anthony Charles had the ball in the net midway through the second-half, but his header, from a Ronan Murray free-kick, was disallowed.

Another new player, Reuben Reid, also went close to breaking the deadlock, but in the end Argyle had to settle for a point.

With bottom club Bristol Rovers winning at Rotherham, it's getting very tight at the foot of the table.

Anthony Charles looks ahead to Plymouth Argyle's game against Accrington Stanley

Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan is continuing to shake up his squad as the club seek to retain their Football League status. Former Argyle trainee Reuben Reid today returned to Home Park for a second spell, while Sheridan has told Rhys Griffiths he has no future with the club.

Another signing is Anthony Charles who recently had his contract terminated by Northampton Town.

Plymouth Argyle hopes to ease relegation fears

Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan is hoping to make it two wins out of two at Home Park tomorrow when the Pilgrims host fellow League Two strugglers Accrington Stanley.

Argyle beat Morecambe two weeks ago to ease their relegation fears but last week's trip to Southend was postpooned due to the weather.

But Sheridan is confident that his squad is well prepared to face Accrington tomorrow.
