Plymouth Argyle are hoping to bring and end to their losing streak on Saturday.

The Pilgrims are away to League Two leaders Gillingham after suffering four defeats in a row.

That has left the side hovering just four points above the relegation zone.

Manager Carl Fletcher admitted he was expecting another tough clash. He said: "Not so long ago, we won three on the bounce. It just shows you how quickly football can turn around. Again, we shouldn't have lost on Wednesday, but we did. You know, Gillingham are top of the League on merit. You know, they've got a good squad there, playing some good football, so we're looking forward to the game.

"They've got a good energy about them, and a good work rate and obviously, you know, their confidence is high, so we'll go into the game, I mean no-one's really expecting anything of us. Like you say, we're playing the League leaders and the form table will tell you that they'll be favourtites, so it's a chance for us to go out there and express ourselves and enjoy the game."
