STATE OF PLAY...
The Iron enter the match buoyed by a third win and clean sheet in a row during the 2-0 away win at MK Dons on Saturday. They are now six matches unbeaten.

With two games of the season remaining, victory over Argyle would seal a place in the play-offs for interim manager Nick Daws’ side.

Derek Adams’ team come into the game full of confidence themselves though after coming from behind to beat fellow promotion candidates Rotherham United 2-1 with a last gasp goal at the weekend.

TEAM NEWS…
Cameron McGeehan (knee) returns from injury to be in contention after sitting out at the weekend.

Ivan Toney limped off at the weekend but has made a full recovery and will be seeking to add to his tally of seven goals since returning to the club.

Luke Williams (hamstring) and Jonathan Margetts (knee) remain the only absentees.

PAST MEETINGS...
United were 4-0 winners at Plymouth Argyle in August 2017.

Paddy Madden followed in his own shot, which had come back off the crossbar, to make it 1-0 in the 27th minute following Josh Morris' pinpoint cross from the left.

He doubled his tally in the 68th minute, diving to head home Duane Holmes' near-post cross, after the substitute made room for himself with a dazzling run down the right.

Tom Hopper made it 3-0 in the 76th minute, diverting Morris' incisive ball down the left with the deftest of touches to convert off the inside of a post from just inside the area.

Morris was rewarded for his part in two of the goals, sweeping home United's fourth goal in the fourth and final minute of stoppage time.

ONE TO WATCH…
Graham Carey helped the Pilgrims win promotion from League Two last season with his 14 goals and 16 assists from midfield.

He has scored 15 times in 46 league appearances so far this season, including a winner from the penalty spot against Rotherham at the weekend.

The 28-year-old has also played 127 games in the Scottish Premier League, scoring on 11 occasions in spells for St Mirren and Ross County.
