Plymouth Preview

15 February 2013

We look forward to Saturday's trip to Home Park

We look ahead to tomorrow's npower League 2 game at Plymouth.

Team News

United will stick with the same 18-man squad as they travel to Home Park. Justin Richards is likely to miss the rest of the season after injuring knee ligaments in last weekend's loss to Bristol Rovers, joining Peter Leven and Ryan Clarke on the long-term injured list.

There is better news for the U's with Tommy Craddock edging closer to fitness after a groin problem. The striker is likely to resume training next week, while fellow front man Jon-Paul Pittman could be back out on the training pitches in the next couple of weeks to further add to United's attacking options. 

Deane Smalley and James Constable are likely to continue up front while at the back goalkeeper Luke McCormick returns to the club he helped to two promotions earlier in his career. 

See Andy Whing, now fully fit and raring to go, in Yellow Player's Preview Show.

The Opposition
New boss John Sheridan is under no illusions about the scale of the task facing his side as they fight relegation. Argyle are in 20th position, two points clear of the relegation zone, and Sheridan told the Plymouth Evening Herald:

"I think it's going to go right to the wire. I really do. Teams are going to get drawn into it, hopefully. We are going to lose some games, but we are going alright at the moment.We have just got to keep picking points up from games and then everything will take care of itself.

"I have got a points tally in my head which I think will see us safe. I have also got a points tally which I would like to get from each month. I'm not going to say what they are. It might be the kiss of death."

Goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin (hamstring) and defender Curtis Nelson (groin) are out but former United loanee Lee Cox could be in the Argyle side after joining on loan until the end of the season.
