Plymouth vs Yeovil by Hassy

Table topping Plymouth face relegation threatened Yeovil Town in South West Country derby match. Following their 2-1 win away at Hartlepool United last weekend, which also meant an end of four league matches without a win Plymouth are now sitting top of the league. The fact that the Pilgrims are still top despite their poor run of form pays testament to how strong they have been for the majority of the season so far. On Boxing Day they come against a side that sit second from bottom in Yeovil Town and I have absolutely no doubt that they will be eager to post back-to-back wins which will ensure that they cement their position at the top of the division.


Plymouth have picked up 20 points from 11 games at home, winning 6 times and drawing three so they have a decent home record.


Despite scoring the winner against Hartlepool last week striker Deane Smalley is likely to start on the bench on Boxing Day as he continues his comeback. However, Luke McCormick (groin and finger) should keep his position between the posts after returning in that win.


Yeovil are coming off the back of two draws thanks to Francois Zoko’s goals in games against both Barnet and Leyton Orient. Three goals in two games for the front man, whose form could be the key to getting out of trouble over the festive period. The point away at Leyton Orient is a very good draw and does stand up for attention. Yeovil have now gone 14 league matches without a win in League Two and as a result they now occupy second from bottom spot in the division. In addition to this an away record of one win all season with 7 losses does not bode well or inspire much confidence.


Yeovil have some positive team news though. Marc Laird took part in training this week and he could be involved in the match day squad soon. Wes Fodgen and Harry Cornick both missed the Orient game but neither have been ruled out of making a return on Boxing Day. Elsewhere – Connor Roberts has extended his deal on loan from Swansea for another month.


Argyle are sat pretty at the very top of League Two, their accumulation of 43 points is a full 30 points more than Yeovil. Yeovil have only picked up six points on the road and I cant see them getting anything off the potential champions this season. This won't be as easy as the gap in the league table suggests but I expect a straightforward 2-0 home win.
