Plymouth Argyle face a tough test as they kick off their League campaign.

The Pilgrims are at hosting Aldershot at Home Park on Saturday.

The Shots are coming off a winning run at the end of last season.

Manager Carl Fletcher thinks Plymouth's triumph over Portsmouth in the Capital One Cup is a boost. He said: "Whatever team you come up against, there's always different challenges. You know, when we played against Portsmouth, they're young and they've got alot of energy. Yeah, Aldershot will be another tough game for us. They're a good side, they were unlucky to miss out on the play offs last year. We know it's going to be tough, but we're looking forward to it.

"You want to try and get a real good start, as good as possible. But I think you only have to look back at last season and see Swindon's start. I don't think they won in five games and they ended up being champions, so it's not essential."
