PLYMOUTH Argyle entertain York City tomorrow having lost just one of their last 11 home games in Sky Bet League Two.

That loss came during a 1-0 reverse against play-off hopefuls Burton at the end of November. Wycombe and Fleetwood are the only other teams to take all three points from Home Park this season.

John Sheridan’s men will also be boosted by the return of Argentinian playmaker Andres Gurrieri for the game.

The ex-Burton midfielder has served a three-match suspension with Benin international Rommy Boco’s starting place coming under the most threat from his return.

But first-choice goalkeeper Luke McCormick, striker Marvin Morgan, centre-back Guy Branston and forward Matt Lecointe will definitely play no part against the Minstermen.

McCormick is out for the rest of the season with a serious finger injury, meaning reserve shot-stopper Jake Cole was recalled for last Saturday’s 2-0 win at Northampton.

Full-backs Durrell Berry and Matt Parsons, meanwhile, both remain doubtful.

Tomorrow’s game is unlikely to be a goal-fest with Argyle’s 15 home League fixtures having only produced 25 goals – the lowest at any Football League stadium this season.

In Reuben Reid, a season-long loan signing from Championship outfit Yeovil, the Pilgrims do, however, boast one of the most reliable scorers in the division.

Reid’s return of 14 goals in all competitions this term puts him just one behind League Two’s most-potent frontmen – Scunthorpe’s Sam Winnall and Scott Hogan, of Rochdale.

The prolific Pilgrim was on target during last weekend’s win at anchor club Northampton, which saw Sheridan’s side end a run of six games without a win, including four draws and two defeats.

Plymouth (probable): Cole, Blanchard, Trotman, Nelson, Purrington, Boco, Blizzard, Hourihane, Banton, Alessandra, Reid.

McCormick probably injured his finger punching someone as he did Bowman at Bootham Crescent!

Good job the game wasn't this afternoon. First hoof of the ball would have taken it past the Scilly Isles. If you're driving down tomorrow, check out the flooding on the M5 past Worcester just before (or maybe after) the M50 turn off. Armageddon. Drove past it yesterday and never seen anything like it in my long and undistinguished life

I'm loving the look of the league table right now. City up to 10th with that penalty at Plymouth. Hang on there lads. Could we ... just possibly ... push on to challenge for a promotion place? 11 point gap, but you never know.
