Football: Argyle vs Cheltenham

Plymouth Argyle hunt for their first win of the season as they take the trip to Cheltenham.

The Pilgrims have failed to notch up any league points so far.

The lads also crashed out of the Capital One Cup.

Captain Conor Hourihane told Pirate FM: "Fingers crossed we'll get back on the winning trail or at least get something out of the game. It's been a disappointing start to the season. We need to stop being such a soft touch in my opinion, being hard to beat and getting something, especially away from home because it's always a bonus when you get points away from home.

"There's been a good buzz around the changing rooms and when we've gone out it just hasn't clicked and it hasn't been good enough at all compared to the standards we had at the end of last season which kept us up. So, it's been frustrating but we've got to stick together and I'm sure it'll come good."


Argyle will be buoyed by the news that planning permission has been granted for redevelopment of Higher Home Park which will benefit the club with a brand new, state-of-the-art grandstand.

Sheridan has just two long term absentees in Paul Wotton (ribs) and Matt Lecointe (knee) and welcomes back Guy Branston, who came through 60 minutes of a development fixture against Yeovil on Tuesday.

Defender Maxime Blanchard remains on compassionate leave following the tragic death of his brother.
