The Plymouth boss is urging his team to play with a smile on their face.

Argyle travel to Rotherham on Saturday.

Gaffer Carl Fletcher wants the side to enjoy the opportunity to try new things.

The Millers, under the leadership of Steve Evans, are currently occupying the last play-off space in npower League 2 but Fletcher believes that if the Pilgrims can perform like they did against Cheltenham on Tuesday, then they’ll stand a good chance.

With Conor Hourihane suspended, Fletch is likely to hand a full debut to Cornish midfielder Jamie Lowry.

Lowry, who signed from Chesterfield in the summer, made his debut as a late substitute in the defeat to Cheltenham but prior to that, had not played following an ankle injury, sustained whilst playing against Truro City in a pre-season friendly.

In the Pilgrims last trip to south Yorkshire, they lost 1-0 at Rotherham’s previous home, the Don Valley Stadium.

This will be their first opportunity to play at United’s brand new New York Stadium.
