"The first half was a non-event and we were never going to create anything.

"I gave them a rocket at the interval and in the second half we picked up and played the game more at our tempo.

"The players are low on confidence at the moment and the side needs help so hopefully we can bring in some fresh faces to liven up the squad."

"I don't think a draw was a fair result," said Plymouth manager Ian Holloway.

"We would have taken two draws from the games against Cardiff at the start of the season but they have been on a poor run of form and it showed in their edgy first half performance. And I'm disappointed we have not won the game.

"Credit to them for coming out after the break and scoring two quick goals and it must have been because of what the manager said to them in the dressing room.

"I still believe that football should close down over the Christmas period as everyone out there today looked as though they wanted to be at home with their families."
