Plymouth Argyle Preview

9 February 2018

Marcus Braddock looks ahead to Saturday's game with Plymouth Argyle

This weekend Shrewsbury Town entertain Plymouth Argyle who we met earlier in the season. It's safe to say that the Pilgrims have turned a difficult season into what looks like a good first season after promotion. Since that closely fought 1-1 draw in October the Pilgrims have lost just three times in League One and have stormed up the league to 11th place. Just Wigan, Portsmouth, and Oxford United have managed to take three points in the four months between now and October with the Latics the only team to beat Plymouth at home or away since the turn of 2018

Team news

Plymouth Derek Adam is likely to name an unchanged team.

Paul Hurst has no new injury worries, Junior Brown is still on the road back to recovery and Dean Henderson is serving the third game of his suspension.

Summary

This is not going to be easy is it? If there was one team you want to avoid it's one on a good run. But we've also been here before, last week Bristol Rovers had been on a good run and so had Portsmouth the week before that. Admittedly Plymouth's run is a particularly impressive one and their manager is targeting what he sees as our weaknesses and aiming for three points. Paul Hurst is expecting a tough game but has a continuation of our winning run of three games in all competitions in his sights.

 COYB!!!

The Town were on course to record their fourth consecutive win after going one nil up early in the game from a Carlton Morris goal but a disappointed Shrews side conceded 2 goals giving the visiting Plymouth side all 3 points.

Team news: Paul Hurst makes two changes to the side which beat Bristol Rovers last weeken.  Omar Beckles and Shaun Whalley are left out in favour of Max Lowe and Alex Rodman, who was so influential off the bench last weekend.

First-Half:

Their was early concern for Town in the first minute as Abu Ogogo received treatment following on from a challenge, but the Shrews captain got back onto his feet to resume the game.

Town broke the deadlock early on with some sublime passing around the box by Alex Rodman and Max Lowe, Rodman slipped in a pass behind the defensive line and Lowe fired the ball across goal creating a great chance on the edge of the six yard box for Carlton Morris who fired home past Remi Matthews, giving The Shrews the lead in the sixth minute.

Town were nearly in on goal again on the 14th minute after some impressive play in the midfield by goal scorer Morris, he slipped the ball through to captain Ogogo but the captain couldn’t find a through ball past the Plymouth defence.

Plymouth Argyle had their first chance of the game in the 16th minute, A free kick 25 yards out struck by Plymouth number 10 Graham Carey didn’t beat the wall and the following corner didn’t produce a goal.

Plymouth were awarded a penalty by referee Ben Toner in the 19th minute as Mat Sadler was deemed to have fouled Antoni Sarcevic. Craig MacGilivray stepped up and made a superb save from Graham Carey to keep Town in the lead.

Town nearly doubled their lead in the 23rd minute, a fine save at the near post by Remi Matthews denied the Shrews a two goal cushion and Alex Rodman a goal, after some neat play between Max Lowe and Rodman on the left..

The lead wasn’t to last as Plymouth managed to capitalise on a defensive mistake and level the score line in the 27th minute, a slip from Mat Sadler gave Plymouth number six Jamie Ness a clear shot on goal. Ness fired the ball hard and low into the right hand corner giving the keeper no chance.

Town nearly restored the lead in the 39th minute. James Bolton went on an impressive run but couldn’t beat the Plymouth keeper with a shot from outside the box.

After open, end-to-end first half both teams went into the half time break with the score line remaining level.

Half-Time: 1-1

Second-Half:

The first half got underway and both teams struggled to keep possession of the ball. The first real chance for either team came for Plymouth in the 55th minute as a cross was fired into the box but Sonny Bradley couldn’t keep the ball down and struck the ball over the bar.

A 62nd minute corner for Plymouth proved too much to handle for the Town defence, a goal mouth scramble for the ball was eventually prodded home into the bottom right hand corner by Zak Vyner, giving Plymouth the lead.

Town almost replied minutes later after a superb cross into the box, Nathan Thomas headed the ball towards goal from seven yards out but the keeper remained strong and parried the ball away from goal.

The second half was lacking any real goalmouth action, in the 75th minute Jon Nolan had a chance to put the ball into a packed box but he couldn’t beat the advancing defender.

In the 82nd minute, Town’s frustrations were starting to grow as Stefan Payne received a yellow card for a late challenge on Oscar Threlkeld.

A late chance fell for Lenell John-Lewis in the 89th minute to make the scores level, Some nice passing around the box found the ball fall to Lewis, but the substitute couldn’t find the back of the net and struck the ball straight at the keeper.

Town continued to pump balls forwards but the inform Plymouth side held out to take all 3 points.

Full-Time: 1-2
