Battle for league survival rages on with another home draw!

Maxime Blanchard rescued a point for Plymouth Argyle after going behind early in the game. A win would have moved Argyle upto 20th but a point is better than none as it moves the Pilgrims upto 21st, still a lot of hard work to come to survive but I am positive that Plymouth can survive!

Bristol Rovers’ Matt Harold’s close range header put the visitors into the lead in the 14th minute of the game from Matt Gill’s corner kick. Blanchard almost levelled the scores but saw his shot rebound off the underside of the crossbar and out before finally finding the back of the net from close range in the 84th minute. It was an action packed game looking at the match statistics!

There were 34 shots on goal during the game and 19 of those were on target, Argyle edging the on target shots 10 to 9; it’s safe to say that the game could have gone either way. On balance I would say that a draw is a fair result, but speaking as a Plymouth Argyle fan, it’s disappointing to draw the game given that Blanchard came close to putting it in the back of the net a second time!

The Liverpool Vs QPR game just finished and with five minutes remaining the Reds were in a position to claim all three points from the game; leading the home side 1 – 2, then I visited the bathroom for a few minutes and when I came back it was 3 – 2 to QPR, what the hell?

How did Liverpool manage to lose a game where they had 18 shots on goal to 10 and the lions share of the possession until the last 10 minutes; it’s almost like Liverpool switched off for the final 10 minutes of the game. I would say that fourth place in the Premier League is now beyond the Reds, now 12 points off the final Champions League place with only nine games remaining in the season.

The first 45 minutes ended in a scoreless stalemate, but the game exploded into life in the second half with Sebastian Coates opening the scoring for the Reds with a spectacular volley in the 54th minute and Dirk Kuyt doubled the advantage from close range in the 72nd minute of the game.

After Liverpool went 2 – 0 up; the tide turned in favour of the home side, Shaun Derry pulling one back with a close range header in the 77th minute, nine minutes later, former Red Djibril Cisse made it 2 – 2 with another header. Finally; former Plymouth Argyle striker Jamie Mackie put QPR into the lead in the 91st minute with a low drive from inside the penalty area to kill off the game.

I really can’t wait to hear KD’s reaction to this performance; I’d say PPP (piss poor performance).
