Last Updated: 12/01/19 9:10pm
Bristol Rovers extended their unbeaten league run to five games with a goalless draw at Accrington Stanley.
The Pirates are in need of points to move away from the relegation zone while mid-table Stanley stopped a run of two league defeats.
Rovers keeper Jack Bonham kept his side in it with a string of impressive saves.
The on-loan Brentford custodian turned a Billy Kee free-kick around the post after 18 minutes while Middlesbrough loanee Luke Armstrong came close to opening his league account on his Stanley debut.
The 22-year-old got the ball at the far post in the 37th minutes but Bonham superbly denied him. The Pirates keeper also pushed away a Jordan Clark strike from a tight angle.
It was not all Stanley, though, as Alex Rodman had a free header for Rovers after 25 minutes but he put the chance across the goal and wide.
After the break, Bonham was again in action, denying Kee twice as the home side looked for the breakthrough.
Armstrong also had two good chances close to the end but headed both wide while Stanley keeper Jonny Maxted denied Liam Sercombe the winner with the final kick of the match.
