Goalkeeper Remi Matthews helped Plymouth Argyle secure a 1-1 draw at home to Rochdale in Sky Bet League One.

The Academy graduate had his emergency loan extended by a week after none of Plymouth’s three goalkeepers recovered from injury. Following on from his clean sheet on debut last week, Matthews pulled off two superb saves to ensure that Plymouth came away with a point.

They remain at the bottom of the table, four points from safety. In contrast, Shrewsbury Town top the League One table – but they suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of Peterborough. The table-toppers had yet to taste defeat in their opening 15 matches but Posh’s Marcus Maddison scored the only goal of the game, a spectacular 40-yard half-volley past Shrewsbury keeper Dean Henderson in the 14th minute.

Carlton Morris and Ben Godfrey both started for Salop, and Morris came closest to scoring when his header was well saved at full stretch by goalkeeper Jonathan Bond. Morris played the full 90 and Godfrey – who was booked – was substituted with four minutes remaining. Ebou Adams was an unused substitute.

Elsewhere in League One, Harry Toffolo played the full 90 minutes as Doncaster’s 1-0 victory away at Bury gave them their third win in five league matches. Ben Whiteman struck the only goal of the game to help move Doncaster up to 17th, with Bury dropping to 23rd.

In League Two, Grimsby Town completed a second successive 0-0 at home to Cambridge United. Diallang Jaiyesimi was an 84th minute substitute.

Sean Raggett was also involved in a League Two stalemate. He played the full 90 minutes as Lincoln City drew 0-0 at home to Crawley Town. Lincoln remain three points outside the play-offs.

In the National League, Michee Efete played the full 90 minutes for Torquay United, but their 2-0 home defeat to Hartlepool United kept them in the bottom two.

Fellow defender Louis Ramsay missed Woking’s 3-2 home defeat to Guiseley through injury. The loss saw them drop out of the top six.

Kieran Higgs made his debut for Solihull Moors, coming on as a 75th-minute substitute at home to AFC Fylde. The 4-0 defeat leaves Solihull bottom of the National League.

In Ireland, Joe Crowe did not feature for Limerick as they went down 2-1 away at Shamrock Rovers in the final game in the League of Ireland Premier Division. He will now return to Norwich City.
