Trio Miss Out at Plymouth
Saturday, 2nd Mar 2024 14:15

Town boss Kieran McKenna is forced into three changes with Massimo Luongo joining Nathan Broadhead and Wes Burns in missing today’s game at Plymouth Argyle.

Luongo is ill, while Broadhead (thigh) and Burns (calf) suffered knocks in last Saturday’s 3-1 home victory over Birmingham City.

Lewis Travis replaces the Australian international in central midfield with Omari Hutchinson and Jeremy Sarmiento coming in on the right and left respectively. Conor Chaplin is OK to start despite suffering a gash to his leg last week.

Elsewhere, Axel Tuanzebe keeps his place at right-back with Harry Clarke, who celebrates his 23rd birthday today, on the bench, alongside Jack Taylor, who is back after his quad injury.

Plymouth are unchanged from their 2-0 victory at Middlesbrough last weekend.

Plymouth Argyle: Hazard, Houghton (c), Pleguezeulo, Haride, Whittaker, Miller, Gibson, Gyabi, Randell, Galloway, Sorinola. Subs: Cooper, Mumba, Sousa, Edwards, Bundu, Devine, Waine, Phillips, Forshaw.

Town: Hladky, Tuanzebe, Woolfenden, Burgess, Davis, Morsy (c), Travis, Hutchinson, Chaplin, Sarmiento, Moore. Subs: Walton, Clarke, Edmundson, Ball, Taylor, Humphreys, Harness, Al-Hamadi, Jackson. Referee: Josh Smith (Lincolnshire).

Nervous about this one

First eleven still looks ok but the bench is much less strong.

Well done Huddersfield

Although Wes had just started playing really well again we shouldn't miss him too much because Hitchinson is also in great form. As he is joint top scorer we may miss Broadhead more but it's an opportunity for Sarmiento to impress as a starter. Travis also has the chance to show how good he is. My biggest concern is Tuanzebe at right back but hopefully he will show that last week's excellent performance wasn't a fluke.
As Whittaker is almost certain to score and Plymouth always play well against us I would be satisfied with a draw.

I'd take a point right now tbh .

Two massive forward players missing out today in Burns & Broadhead, and yet we have excellent, dangerous replacements for both in Hutchinson & Sarmiento starting. On top of that, we have experienced played in Jackson & Harness to come for both in the second half, if/when required. That's impressive strength in depth.
I had expected Harness to start today, given the threat Plymouth pose out wide, so hopefully Sarmiento is ready to give all from a defensive, aswell as an attacking, perspective.
