PLYMOUTH 0 CITY 0
Frustrated City were held to a third draw on the bounce at relegation-haunted Plymouth.
Garry Thompson had their best chance with an early one-on-one but was denied by Jake Cole's outstretched leg.
Thompson also clipped the top of the bar while Plymouth's best player, on-loan Crystal Palace winger Jason Banton hit the post.
City pushed for a goal late on but could not find a breakthrough, Kyel Reid seeing his shot parried and James Hanson's rebound being deflected narrowly wide.
But the draw moves them no nearer the top seven.
Mayhem in City box as McArdle panicky clearance falls short of Duke. Keeper is bundled over as he tries to catch and two Argyle players look to force it in but McHugh's there.
Mad finish to game but it's 0-0.
Connell shot blocked on edge of box.
But ref blows for foul against Hanson.
Reid cross turned over bar by Bhasera under pressure from Atkinson. Chance for City from corner.
Reid held back by Blanchard but ref instead points for goal kick. Winger felt he was fouled and it looked it.
Connell tries a chip but easy for keeper.
Six added minutes to play.
Here come City again but Reid is crowded out in penalty area.
Two Plymouth subs. Debutant Bryan makes way for Harvey and Cowan-Hall replaces Gurrieri.
Come on City! You need to turn these chances into a goal otherwise we won't make the play offs!!! #bcafc— @marktownson 12 March 2013
Now it's Connell with a chance but the shot is saved low down.
Reid shot saved by Cole and Hanson's follow-up is deflected agonisingly wide.
Miskick by Cox to Thompson, whose shot hits the top of the bar. That was his final touch as on comes Connell.
Second City sub, Atkinson for Hines.
Inviting cross from Banton is too strong for Gurrieri at the back post as McHugh covers.
15 mins to go plus hefty amount of stoppage time. City need a goal from somewhere.
Plymouth free-kick 30 yards out but smashed well wide by Wotton.
Another delay as Bhasera gets treatment. Could be a fair bit of stoppage time again.
Sub for Plymouth as Reid replaced by Chadwick.
Another good corner from Doyle but it beats everyone in the packed six-yard box.
Doyle free-kick headed over the bar by Bhasera for a City corner.
Blanchard is booked for the foul and hurt himself doing it.
Gray subbed by Hanson. Ironic cheer from some in the away end.
City thought they had a penalty as Reid is brought down right on edge of box. But free-kick awarded yard outside.
Awkward dipping shot from Banton and Duke does well to hold it on the floor.
Ravenhill booked after one foul too many. Just had a lecture from ref warning no more.
Scrappy spell as Reuben Reid and Bryan have shots charged down in the City box.
City shout for handball as Gray shot hits Wotton but ref is unimpressed.
Corner for City and the 174 followers make some noise. It's a good one from Doyle but McHugh heads wide.

Corner for Plymouth but offside flag stops their momentum.
Banton tries shot from tight angle and hits outside of post.

45 min to turn a draw into a win and pull 7 points behind Exeter with 2 games in hand and a trip to them on Sat #bcafc— @BaconBantam 12 March 2013
McHugh comes running in to meet it but his radar is awry.
Corner for City right on half-time.
Plymouth press think Branston was fortunate not to see red. It was very late.

With Accrington losing 1-0, Plymouth are off the bottom as it stands.

#bcafc big shout to the Royal Naval Bantams! Let's show the Janners what we are all about.— @socialsuccess71 12 March 2013
Been told that Chris Waddle is in the crowd tonight.
Duke flaps Bryan's kick away rather unconvincingly but cross back into the box is a poor one.
Corner for Plymouth.
Kyel Reid drills free-kick low but it is poor and well wide.
Handball outside the box gives City free-kick in good position.
Gray heads over bar from City corner.

Judge the team at full time #bcafc— @dan_yeadon 12 March 2013
baffled by the continued team changes, surely pick your best team on the night, feels like pre-season? #bcafc hope I am wrong— @monkeyista 12 March 2013
Brass band music greets the arrival of the teams.
Plymouth beat Barnet in last home game but have not won back to back at Home Park in the league all season.
Very low away following tonight #bcafc— @Jason_Mckeown 12 March 2013
Respect to any city fan who s gone down today. Long way #bcafc— @pauldearns 12 March 2013
Referee Andy Davies (not to be confused with Andrew Davies...) has awarded ten penalties in 19 games.
Andy Gray's inclusion over Alan Connell has raised eyebrows among fans. The veteran striker is still waiting to open his account for his second spell with City - tonight would be a good place to start.
Think Parky's got 90mins to prove everybody wrong! #bcafc #tinkerman— @Albertstan 12 March 2013
#bcafc Fingers crossed for tonight! Not convinced by Gray yet but I'll happily be proved wrong! #CTID— @DaveFirth1982 12 March 2013
Not the happiest hunting ground for City - won only once in the last 12 visits to Home Park. Remember August 1994? Hammered Argyle 5-1 with a Paul Jewell hat-trick.
If we win tonight Saturdays game against Exeter will be a massive 6 pointer #bcafc— @Adam_Ellis1986 12 March 2013
Well, the #bcafc line up for tonight boggles the mind...in particular Gray chosen over Connell. Still, in Parky we trust!— @bantamsbanter 12 March 2013
Big night for City. Another draw no good at this stage of season. #bcafc— @BantamsCraig 12 March 2013
Paul Wotton making his 468th appearance for Plymouth.
Plymouth handed an immediate debut to Bristol City midfielder Joe Bryan who only signed on loan this afternoon.
Guy Branston also lined up at centre half - the third time he had faced City this season with a third different team.
PLYMOUTH: Cole, Blanchard, Wotton, Branston, Bhasera, Gurrieri, Cox, Hourihane, Bryan, Reid, Banton. Subs: Berry, Cowan-Hall, Young, Chadwick, Murray, Harvey, Chenoweth.
Welcome from Home Park where Phil Parkinson has made six changes to his City side.
Matt Duke returns in goal and Andrew Davies is back at centre half for Michael Nelson.
Parkinson has named both wingers in midfield with Gary Jones given a breather in the centre as Nathan Doyle partners Ricky Ravenhill.
And both strikers have changed - but there is no Alan Connell, whose last-gasp penalty saved a point against Aldershot on Saturday. Instead Andy Gray is paired with Garry Thompson.
CITY: Duke, Darby, McArdle, Davies, McHugh, Hines, Doyle, Ravenhill, Reid, Thompson, Gray. Subs: Hanson, Atkinson, Wells, Jones, Nelson, Connell, McLaughlin.
