Well, let's hope Plymouth's away form continues, bottom of that particular league table. Although they won their last away league game  Roll Eyes They have also played 2 FA Cup ties in January.

I'll go....

3-2 to us/ frozen pitch (50/50).

Be surprised if it goes ahead. If it does, 2-1 win.

The weather is supposed to be 6 degrees and rain so it will probably go ahead if that is the case.

Plymouth were very poor in the first game down there but that was a long time ago now, Kovar and Grounds cost us the game when we could easily have got at least a draw, a poor sending off for Jonny Smith rounded off a shit night.

Their results have looked average at best since then and sit bang mid table with 8 wins and 30 points from the same number of games as us.

League form in the last 5 games has been
Muff - DLWDW
Ours - DLWLD

Their biggest scalp in their recent run of games was a win away at Sunderland where they were won 2-1 despite having just 37% possession and only having 3 shots all game. By contrast Sunderland had 14 shots and 5 on target, Sunderland made 525 passes and Plymouth little more than half that. Sounds a little bit like our game on Saturday at Charlton.

On current form a draw probably looks likely but Plymouth are certainly nothing to be feared and one of the sides we really should be beating, but we said the same about MKD and look how that ended!

Keep the 15 goal (13 league) Jephcott quiet and we will stand a good chance of getting a result.

That was a very strange way of putting it by Wright. I read that as a statement saying they can stay if they want to, but we aren't going to play them unless we have to.

But also don't dare suggest that this might be a way of potentially "forcing out" some loan players. By changing to a system that doesn't fit them properly. Cos you know they were really nice about it and said;

'well you can stay if you want (but we'll make it incredibly difficult for you).'

I know nothing as usual, in the minds of some on here

I would not be at all surprised to see us end-up settling on the 3-5-2 formation based on some of the previous games.  It certainly seems Sheridan is a paint by numbers Manager and he has tried it before already.  Even his latest 4-5-1 effort has a central midfielder out wide.

He saw we had issues defending and has likely decided adding numbers in the middle is the answer.  It's pretty evident we haven't spent much time worrying about style of play as we've gradually abandoned anything Wellens brought to the table - things like the central midfielder dropping into full back positions when we have the ball in defence as a way of building possession.

Freeman and Thompson both look like a good fit for wing back roles and we have a bounty of central defenders now.

5-3-2 into 3-5-2 (with Freeman & Thompson advancing to FWB role).
