Austrian Tour: Tel Aviv

Hapoel Tel Aviv 1 - 1 Plymouth Argyle (Buszaky)

In a repeat scoreline of Tuesday's game, in almost repeat timed game, Argyle equalise with a late goal from Akos Buszaky after Tel Aviv take an early lead.

Badeer Valeed took the early lead for Tel Aviv after 10 minutes in the preseason tour friendly in a slightly different line up due to Ebanks-Blakes injury meaning Chadwick partnered Hayles up front with Norris, Summerfield and Barnes behind, and Gosling, Timar, Doumbe and Hodges at the back. However this formation proved lacklustre and following the goal Holloway switched to a 4-3-3 which changed the game as Argyle started to look sharper. A near full change of squad at half-time as follows Holloway's preseason 'tactics', saw Argyle domineering possession but still getting caught out on set-pieces and wantonness in front of the goal save for some excellent efforts from Gosling and Buszaky who eventually scored the equaliser from a short taken corner.
