TEENAGER Tyler Harvey marked his full debut for Argyle by scoring an equaliser in the last minute to deny Torquay a win in the Boxing Day derby at Home Park.

Argyle had bossed a scrappy first half in which they attacked brightly but met stubborn resistance from the Gulls defence in which Aaron Downes and Angus MacDonald were outstanding.

In the second half, however, Torquay imposed themselves on the game and created a string of chances in front of their travelling fans who numbered more than 1,500.

Home keeper Rene Gilmartin did well to deny Kevin Nicholson, while Torquay skipper Lee Mansell hit the bar from close range.

Torquay took the lead in the 78th minute through Aaron Downes, who dispatched a Nicholson corner into the roof of the net at the second attempt.

But in the final minute, 17-year-old Harvey turned to fire in a superb left-foot shot from the edge of the box.

Mansell was stretchered off late in the game after a brave block tackle, but his leg injury was not as bad as first feared.
