Plymouth Argyle are hoping to get their pre-season campaign back on track.

The Pilgrims are facing Truro for a friendly on Tuesday, after they lost 5-0 to Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Manager Carl Fletcher said: "Saturday's, Saturday. I'm not too bothered, do you know what I mean? We took on board what we needed to, saw some things that we needed to see. Yeah, like I said, especially early doors, in pre-season, it's all about getting the minutes under your belt and just getting into the pace of the game, and just getting used to playing football matches again.

Fletcher adds, he is hoping for a boost from new signing Rhys Griffiths, "He's played in the Welsh League all his career, but I think he's been top goalscorer for as many years as you can remember. He played in Europe regularly and scored in that competition as well, so it's pleasing for us."

32 year-old firefighter Griffiths joined Argyle on trial two weeks ago.

It is the sixth time the Pilgrims have played Truro in the pre-season matches, and Argyle have not yet lost.
