Dagenham & Redbridge 0, Argyle 0


Argyle picked up their first point of the season at Victoria Road this evening, playing out a goalless draw with Dagenham & Redbridge. Jake Cole, who made two fine saves during the opening period, was the star of the show for a Pilgrims side who only really threatened during stoppage time in both halves; Matt Lecointe shot wide on the stroke of half time, while a Paul Wotton free kick stung the palms of Daggers 'keeper Chris Lewington in the dying seconds of the match.  Otherwise it was pretty much one way traffic, with the home side squandering two or three gilt-edged opportunities during the second half.
