A Plymouth Argyle legend is is set to play at Home Park for the first time in more than three years later.

The Pilgrims are hosting Burton Albion this afternoon, after losing to Crewe last weekend.

Former captain Paul Wotton is making his return.

Manager Carl Fletcher is hoping it will be a big boost for the team: "There's a lot of young ones there, and in terms of league experience, it's pleasing for us. You know, we've been lucky to get him in. It's another player that we've added to the squad, that increases the competition for places.

Carl adds that Wotton could be a gamechanger for the side: "Yeah, he is; I mean, you need have the right balance for your team. You have your players, where you know what you're going to get week in week out. You need the odd few in there that can change a game for you. In terms of football, they're the ones that everyone wants."
