The big preview - Plymouth

11 March 2014

In-form Wanderers are back in action at Adams Park for the second time in four days this evening as Plymouth Argyle visit South Bucks (k.o 7.45pm).

Chairboys go into the game on the back of a six-match unbeaten run, and full of confidence following Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Hartlepool, which saw the Blues come from behind to beat in-form Pools.

John Sheridan’s Plymouth saw their winning run end at Bristol Rovers at the weekend as the Pilgrims went down 2-1.

However, Argyle have won four of their last six games and are just two points adrift of Southend United in the final play-off position, with a game in-hand.

Gareth Ainsworth

“It was a really positive day, but we can’t get carried away because we’ve got free-scoring Plymouth now.

“They took a beating on Saturday, but we know we’ll be up against it.

“We always seem to lift our game against teams that are playing well. The good thing for me was the Exeter game where we went there and won because we have to turn it on with everyone now.

“We’ve got some disappointed boys who aren’t playing and it’s great that they’re champing at the bit to get in the team, but they’re the first to congratulate the boys that have played. The 11 that finished against Hartlepool won’t be the same 11 for every game.”

Centre-back Neal Trotman, speaking to after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers

“We just weren’t able to click. It was just one of those games and we weren’t able to take the game by the scruff of the neck, but that’s football.

“You could say that about against Barcelona as they got beat as well. I’m not saying we’re Barcelona, just hopefully against Wycombe it will be our day.

“I think we’ve done quite well though. I think we could go a decent run after that. We can’t dwell on Rovers. Obviously no-one likes to get beaten, but we’ve just got to focus on Wycombe and go on another run.

“We’ve got some tough games coming up against Chesterfield and Scunthorpe but we’ll have to see past Wycombe first and see what we can do.”

Team news

Wanderers will have to shuffle the pack with Paris Cowan-Hall (ankle) and Josh Scowen (suspended) ruled out, while Gary Doherty, Charles Dunne and Tommy Fletcher remain sidelined. Stuart Lewis (hamstring) and Reece Styche (groin) are injury doubts.

Argyle will again be without Jason Banton (groin) and goalkeeper Luke McCormick (finger).
