Match Previews

Plymouth Preview

24 August 2012

We look forward to the Big Match

We look ahead to tomorrow's match.
Team News
United have no new injuries and striker James Constable has had a few days to get over a slight groin strain which restricted him to a sub's role on Tuesday against Southend.

Constable may have to stay patient though with Deane Smalley, Alfie Potter, Sean Rigg and sub Tom Craddock all impressing in midweek.

See Chris Wilder previewing the game in Yellow Player.

The Opposition 
Having started the season with a win over Portsmouth in the Capital One Cup, Plymouth lost their first game of the league season, 2-0 at home to Aldershot but picked up a useful point at Dagenham in midweek.
Argyle manager Carl Fletcher expects United to be a stern challenge for his side, who can call on former U's Darren Purse, Paul Wotton  and Jake Cole.

"They've had a good start, they're a good side." Fletcher told BBC Radio Devon "They had a good side last year, it's a really big club with some good players. They've had a couple of seasons where they've not been far from the play-offs and I'm sure they'll be looking forward to pushing on this season. It's going to be a real tough test for us." 

Man in the Middle
The referee for tomorrow's game is Stephen Bratt
