The Big Match Preview - Plymouth Argyle

11 September 2015

All you need to know ahead of the visit of the Pilgrims on Saturday (k.o. 3pm).

Wycombe Wanderers vs Plymouth Argyle
Saturday 12th September 2015, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park
Referee: Tim Robinson

It's 2nd vs 3rd at Adams Park as the Chairboys and Pilgrims go head to head four months after their play-off encounters, with neither side showing any ill effects from the heartbreak which ensued.

Gareth Ainsworth's men won 5-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals to secure their route to Wembley, and have continued their excellent momentum from last year into the new campaign, winning four and drawing two of their opening six fixtures.

For Argyle, it was a case of revolution rather than evolution over the summer, with boss John Sheridan leaving to be replaced by Scotsman Derek Adams, who has overseen a transition in personnel and strategy to help his team achieve 12 points so far.

Plymouth's recent record at Adams Park is impressive - barring their play-off hiccup - but tomorrow could be their toughest visit yet against a Wanderers side who have won five of their last seven league outings on home soil, and have adapted superbly to the new playing surface which has been conducive to some excellent attacking football.

New striker Gozie Ugwu will be hoping to thrive on that style of play if he is handed his debut in the Wycombe side after signing on Wednesday, and he could be one of three former Pilgrims in the team with Jason Banton and Paul Hayes also facing their old employers.

Aaron Pierre is back from international duty after playing twice for Grenada in World Cup qualifiers and he's in contention, with Anthony Stewart the only confirmed absentee due to his knee problem which will keep him out until Christmas.

Argyle have one former Chairboy in their ranks - striker Reuben Reid - who's returned to the squad after injury, but they have excellent competition for places in attack in their 4-2-3-1 formation, with Ryan Brunt, Jake Jervis and Craig Tanner all available.

Either side could go top with a win if Leyton Orient slip up at Cambridge, which will act as a nice incentive for what both sets of fans in what should be the biggest crowd of the season so far at Adams Park.
