Plymouth 2-2 Wolves

Sam Vokes came off the bench and marked his debut with a late equaliser as Wolves snatched a point at Plymouth.

Plymouth took the lead after seven minutes as Rory Fallon lobbed home when Wolves failed to deal with keeper Graham Stack's long clearance.

Wolves levelled after 19 minutes when Michael Kightly volleyed in Kevin Foley's cross.

Marcel Seip scored for Plymouth from close range after 55 minutes but Vokes struck with just 12 minutes left.

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock:
"From crowd to players to management and directors at Plymouth there was an apprehension with the changeover in personnel we have had to have over the past 18 months.

"We are short, I still think there are two or three players we need to really put an edge to us. But I would rather be in that position at this minute in time and have that bonus that we are going to bring in two or three more players.

"Managers before me have had the great backbone of the old guard but now we are having to rebuild from scratch and it takes time for that transition to kick in."

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy:
"I told the players I think we should have won, so there's no point patting each other on the back.

"There were elements of it that were good - the determination, coming from behind, being down twice, having a real scrap, as not many teams will win here.

"The down side is we didn't finish our chances and I didn't think we defended well, certainly for their goals."
