Bristol Rovers 0-0 Plymouth Argyle| First home points achieved but still no home win

The wait for a home win still goes on for Rovers after they drew 0-0 with Plymouth in a West Country derby.

For the Gas, despite not getting their first win. The first home point was achieved in a tight contest at the Memorial Stadium.

It’s a result that the League One bottom side Plymouth will be very happy with after last two games bought two humbling defeats to Peterborough and Portsmouth.

Both sides had their moments in the game with both keepers making strong saves throughout the 90 minutes.

Yesterday’s game saw both teams get their first league clean sheet of the season which for both was a massive relief given how poor they have been this season.

Jack Bonham, Sam Matthews and Michael Kelly individually impressed yesterday.

For the Scot Kelly, he was drafted in at left-back in place of the suspended Joe Martin for the game.

Many fans had called for Kelly’s inclusion and some thought he was never going to get chance.

Rovers had already used three players at left-back this season in Tony Craig, James Clarke and Joe Martin and boss Darrell Clarke was looking for his fourth man in this position.

For Kelly it was a big day as he was making his league debut and he looked very comfortable and looked a man that had been playing in League One for a lot of years.
