Got to say that's a good point really considering the gulf between us and Luton. Look how far we've come.

For a nil-niller that was a pretty decent game.

The first half was fairly tetchy with Danny Hylton being chief tetch artist. He was booked early on for diving, which wound him right up - and he was wound up pretty tight to start with, and then about 2 minutes later got tangled up with Songo'o, who was excellent as a third CB, and appeared to both lash out with an elbow, throw a kick at Songo'o, dive again and handball the ball. It looked like an obvious 2nd yellow but the ref didn't send him off. Moments later Mick Harford subbed him which was the loudest signal possible to the ref that he had got it wrong and even the Luton fans I spoke to in the pub after thought he should have been sent off.

Carey picked up a completely unnecessary and soft booking when he went into the back of one of theirs a little late. To be honest it was almost nothing and very harsh but it was a challenge that Carey should not have made. In fact it looked like Ladapo should have been the one to close down and challenge but he was standing idly around and so Carey was pressed into action and got a petulant yellow for his trouble.

Edwards also picked up a yellow for a desperate chop to stop a Luton counter-attack. No doubt about this one. "One for the team" as they say.

And so an entertainingly niggly first half finished.

The second half actually had some goal mouth action! Lameiras really should have scored twice. They may have been our only chances but they were damned good ones.

Macey was sound. Everything he was confronted with he dealt with and there was one very good save from a header which he tipped onto the bar. If I was marking out of 10 then he'd be due a 9 yesterday.

I also thought Riley was pretty good too. The 3 CBs allowed him to get forward and he did and he was involved in the creation of our best chances. Don't know what else he would have been expected to do and he'd be due a solid 8 or 9 from me too.

Our best players were Edwards and Songo'o. Edwards took care of Sonny Bradley at all of the set pieces and Songo'o had arguably his best ever game for us and I don't mean that in a made-lots-of-desperate-blocks way but in a marked his man (Hylton) literally out of the game, used the ball well and generally led by example. In any of ours deserved 10/10 yesterday it was him.

In contrast Ladapo was poor and Threlkeld, who was heavily clogged by their [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] early on, barely featured. In the end they were both rightly subbed.

That's about it except for being denied a penalty in the very first minute for the most blatant shirt-pulling you could ever wish to see.

Did we deserve to win? No. We were second best but a close second best and they did not do enough to deserve a win either; we certainly did not deserve to lose.

So all in all a decent point but everybody (!) else won yesterday and we're only 3 points above the drop.

I think we'll be OK but it could still all go 'orribly wrong.

Agree 100% with that summing up!

Indeed.

There is not much in it from Argyle down to Oxford.

It's going to be a nail-biting and nervy ten games to go.

Fundamentally nothing has changed. We still need another 3 wins just like we did before.

It is tight, fore shore, but they can't all win all of the time because they'll be playing each other at some stage.

Nor do many teams at the bottom string together a bunch of wins. One or two might but they all won't.

3 more wins and we'll be fine.

And, to be honest, if we can only muster 2 wins in the final 10 games we deserve to go down.

I was pleased with the draw in the end, against a muuch better team. Just a bit unlucky in that all other results went against us!
