Page last updated at 17:07 GMT, Saturday, 8 October 2011 18:07 UK

Bottom club Plymouth suffered heartache as 10-man Accrington fought back from two goals down to share the points.

Defender Sean Hessey was dismissed for felling Argyle's Matt Lecointe in the area, skipper Simon Walton smashing home the spot-kick.

Ladjie Soukouna fired home from 15 yards but the visitors' Kevin Long powered home a header from Charlie Barnett's free-kick.

Stanley's deserved equaliser came when Padraig Amond headed in from a corner.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Plymouth caretaker-manager Carl Fletcher told BBC Radio Devon:

"It's disappointing, having a 2-0 lead against 10 men. It was an opportunity to win the game.

"Half-time came at a bad time for us really.

"It's still a point, that's two results for us at home."
