Notts County keeper Robert Burch made a superb 70th minute stop to deny npower League One's 12-goal top scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips and maintain parity in a 1-1 draw at a mist-shrouded Home Park.

Right back Stephane Zubar headed the home side ahead in the fourth minute, meeting Craig Noone's free kick from the right with a far post effort that flew across goal and in, via a slight deflection.

County replied within three minutes.

Former Argyle loan signing Alan Judge let fly from the edge of the box with a right foot drive that smacked off the post and into the path of centre forward Lee Hughes who tucked the rebound away from close range, despite offisde appeals from the home side and supporters.

Bradley Wright-Phillips sent County keeper Robert Burch full stretch with a first-time volley from 15 yards following a pinpoint pacy cross from the right by impressive Rory Patterson.

Burch was far busier of the two keepers in the opening exchanges but could only watch as Joe Mason's instinctive volley beat him and flew off the inside of the upright on 25 minutes.

County started the second half brighter with home keeper David Button forced to palm out Lee Miller's 18 yard strike.

Button also kept out Judge's 25 yard shot on 69 minutes.
