AFC Wimbledon manager G. Hodges and his team return home after a 2-2 draw away versus Northampton Town (placed 10th) in the League One. Preceding that game was the away draw at Oxford United (after extra-time, 4-3 on penalties) that finished 1-1.

Plymouth Argyle form and stats

Plymouth play their second straight away game, having lost the previous one 2-3 to Leyton Orient. A home win before that, celebrating 1-0 vs Blackpool.

A huge disappointment for Plymouth Argyle in their last match (vs Leyton Orient). Leading 2-0 the victory seemed almost certain, but a fascinating collapse turned everything around and in the end all was lost in a 2-3 defeat. Plymouth goalkeeper Michael Cooper had a great day against Leyton Orient, but despite making eight saves the loss could not be avoided. Plymouth were so close to getting something from the game against Leyton Orient, but ended up with egg all over their face after conceding the deciding goal three minutes into overtime.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found 15 similar matches played by Plymouth Argyle in our archives, and the results are: four wins for Plymouth Argyle, three draws and eight defeats.
