Plymouth vs Barnet by Hassy
However, the visit from Barnet tonight at their Home Park ground provides The Pilgrims with the perfect opportunity to bounce back with a much-needed win to keep their promotion challenge on track.
Plymouth are one of the divisions strongest sides and at home are extremely consistent and difficult to beat. That said they have won only 2/4 of their home games this season but the draw was unlucky as they conceded an injury time penalty after taking a 1-0 lead in the 86th minute. 7 goals scored in the first four home games is a decent return even though they have played the weaker teams at home so far. Plymouth boss Derek Adams has no new injury concerns ahead of Tuesday night's League Two match at home to Barnet. Defender Carl McHugh remains out with a thigh strain and goalkeeper James Bittner has a back problem. Striker Deane Smalley is a long-term absentee as he recovers from rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last December.
Barnet come into the game with some decent form after winning their last two games. However, it is worth noting that both these games were played at home and they more importantly they have lost the last four away games and have conceded 11 goals in the process. As a result it no surprise to read that Martin Allen will shuffle the pack despite winning the last two games. "We'll be much more cautious. "Basically we'll play 4-5-1, we'll play much deeper, and we'll 'park the bus' for want of a better phrase."
Despite Kevin Lisbie returning to training, he, alongside Graham Stack and Bira Dembele, remains unfit for selection, though beyond them Allen has a near-fully-fit squad from which to choose.
Barnet's away record stands at a poor 0-0-4 and with Plymouth possessing the likes of Jervis and Reid in their attacking ranks, the hosts should prove far too strong for a side struggling massively away from home. I’ll back a Plymouth win.
