Ipswich Town 0 Plymouth 0
A NEIL Alexander penalty save helped Ipswich extend their unbeaten run to 19 at Portman Road stretching back more than 10 months.
Alexander saved from Steve MacLean after Dan Harding handled to deny Plymouth an unjust winner.
Pablo Counago hit a post in a disappointing night for him and the team, while Jason De Vos and Alex Bruce had good efforts cleared off the line in a one-sided contest.
Ipswich had 25 attempts on goal but a mix of poor finishing and good saves from Luke McCormick denied then a much-needed win.

The Blues dominated the first half yet never really troubled Plymouth keeper Luke McCormick.
Owen Garvan, Pablo Counago and Danny Haynes, all scorned decent opportunities.
Debut-making Alan Quinn had a couple of efforts blocked as he impressed in front of the Portman Road crowd.
In the Town goal Neil Alexander, who has been called up by new Scotland boss George Burley to a national training camp next week, had even less to do with a Peter Halmosi free kick Argyle's best effort on target.
Haynes' desire to get past Mathias Doumbe saw him stray off the pitch and nudge a referee's assistant into a photographic pit but after a short delay everyone was fine.
