Preview: Plymouth Argyle

7 April 2017

A full look ahead to Saturday's game against the Pilgrims

The Reds host Plymouth Argyle on Saturday looking for back to back home wins at the Checkatrade Stadium (3pm).

 

A fortnight ago Dermot Drummy’s men were 3-0 victors over Leyton Orient, before they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Newport County last weekend.

 


The Pilgrims come into the contest in second position in Sky Bet EFL Two, but suffered a 1-0 defeat to Accrington Stanley at Home Park last Saturday. They have, however, won more away games (12) than any other team in League 2.

Derek Adams’ side sit ten points inside the automatic promotion places ahead of Saturday’s game. They’re four clear of Portsmouth in third, and trail leaders Doncaster Rovers by six points.

Argyle look set to make amends for last season’s play-off heartache – Adams’ first campaign in charge of the club. They triumphed over Portsmouth in the semi-finals over two legs, but lost out to AFC Wimbledon in the showdown at Wembley.

The History:

 

This will be our sixth League meeting with Argyle and we have yet to be beaten by them at home.

 

Last February a late goal from Shamir Fenelon rescued a point in a 1-1 draw. Argyle had won 2-1, despite an equaliser from Roarie Deacon, earlier in the season while two second-half goals sealed a 2-0 triumph in our most recent meeting at Home Park on New Year’s Eve.

 

The other two League games took place in the 2011-12 campaign.


Argyle were in trouble on and off the field when they arrived in October 2011 when a 3,175 crowd saw two Matt Tubbs goals secure a 2-0 home win.

 

Our first game at Home Park in January 2012 finished 1-1 after Pablo Mills’ first-half goal was cancelled out by Max Blanchard.


The Officials:


Ben Toner will take charge of his third Crawley game of the 2016/17 campaign - read more on his previous appointments and his assistants here.
