MATCH REPORT: BURTON ALBION 2-2 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

19 November 2022

BOBBY Kamwa and Adrian Mariappa both netted their first Albion goals as the Brewers grabbed a late equaliser to take a hard earned point against Plymouth Argyle

It looked like it was going to be disappointment for Dino Maamria's men after they had led through Kamwa's first half goal only to fall behind as Argyle netted twice in a frantic second half through Ryan Hardie's penalty and a stunning finish from Bali Mumba.

The never say die attitude of the Burton players came to the fore again as a drop ball allowed Terry Taylor to send a cross in and headers from both Sam Winnall and Tom Hamer kept the ball alive allowing Mariappa to steer his own header in at the near post.

After the entertaining game against Charlton Athletic yielded just a point from a game Albion probably should have won it was four changes for the visit of the League One leaders. Ben Garratt returned in goal in place of Viljami Sinisalo and there was a welcome return to the back four for Adrian Mariappa who missed the game against the Addicks with a knock. Elsewhere Albion showed plenty of attacking intent with both Joe Dodoo and Bobby Kamwa handed full debuts in an attacking front three alongside Victor Adeboyejo, Joe Powell and Jonny Smith dropping to the bench.

The visitors looked to impose themselves on the game in the early stages in an effort to consolidate their place at the top of the table and a couple of testing crosses from Morgan Whittaker looked to cause problems but Garratt remained untested.

Albion won a couple of quick corners that were swung in by Terry Taylor causing Macaulay Gillesphey to have to defend awkwardly to clear his lines.

Skipper Deji Oshilaja found himself in the referee's book for a challenge that was slightly late on Jordan Houghton. Albion were warming to their task more as the hlaf progressed and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was able to latch onto a pass from Victor Adeboyejo to fizz a rising drive wide of the target with the aid of a deflection unseen by the match officials.

Set pieces were proving to be Albion's best opportunities and Michael Cooper wason his toes on 36 minutes when Tom HAmer's long throw was flicked on and Adrian Mariappa thrust a header towards goal but well within range for the Plymouth keeper.

And the visiting stopper had to be even more alert on 40 minutes when Adeboyejo worked room for a shot that ended in a throw in that Albion would profit from.

Hamer's long throw again caused problems in the box with Dodoo seeing a shot blocked and KAMWA a backheel blocked before the former Leeds youngster turned and smashed the ball home.

Sam Hughes nodded a header wide of the far post as Albion looked for a second before the break but it had been a more than satisfying half from a Burton perspective.

Half time: Burton Albion 1-0 Plymouth Argyle

Argyle came out positively at the start of the second half but having not mde an early response made a double attacking change ten minutes in, Ryan Hardie and former Albion loanee Niall Ennis brought on to inject new life into the Argyle attack.

Tyler Onyango was busy in midfield and the Everton loanee saw an opportunity to look for his first Burton goal but his low drive from 25 yards landed wide of the goal.

Argyle was awarded a penalty when Ennis looked to get onto a low cross from Hardie and was brought down by Hamer and it was HARDIE who stepped up to send Garratt the wrong way and level things up.

The visitors had the wind in their sails now and Morgan Whittaker drove into the box but ran into a wall of yellow shirts and skipper Joe Edwards picked up a loose ball to fire a shot on goal which was straight down the throat of Garratt.

Dodoo found space to exploit on the left, cutting inside onto a pass from Oshilaja but drilled his effort into the side netting with the game finely poised.

Argyle hit the front on 74 minutes with a finish of real quality. Ennis slid a ball through from midfield and MUMBA had the legs to get there before Hamer and drill an outstanding finish across goal and into the far top corner.

Albion responded with a triple change as Powell, Sam Winnall and Mustapha Carayol joined the fray. Kamwa, Dodoo and Onyango making way.

The Brewers kept knocking on the Argyle defensive door but the visitors defended resolutely. Albion had strong shouts for a penalty turned away deeo in added on time when Powell appeared to be bundled to the floor but referee Martin Woods played on. Albion put their disappointment behind them and got their reward when MARIAPPA headed home in front of the joyous Albion fans to take a deserved point.

ALBION: Garratt; Hamer, Hughes, Mariappa, Borthwick-Jackson; Taylor, Oshilaja, Onyango (Carayol, 76); Kamwa (Winnall, 76), Adeboyejo, Dodoo (Powell, 76).
Subssitutes: Sinisalo, Smith, Gilligan, Mancienne.
