“We managed to beat Plymouth at home and I thought we were good value for the win that night. They changed things at half-time and came more into second half but I thought we deserved the three points overall.
“Plymouth came into that game on a poor run for them but they have managed to turn it around again and they are on a decent run themselves.
“I am sure it will be a different game. It is always tough going down there and I just hope we get a good ref this time and it is another good game."

“It should be another good game. It was a good game last month and a good game last season that was spoilt by the referee. We didn’t deserve to lose that game.
“Plymouth will be in far, far better shape than when we played them last month. They are a good side and have good players and they have turned it around."
