Plymouth boss throws down challenge to players ahead of Cup kick-off



Plymouth Argyle take a step away from their League Two schedule this Saturday, as their FA Cup journey begins against Bolton Wanderers.

This will be the first meeting between Bolton and Plymouth for over 25 years, with the last clash all the way back in January 1993.

The anticipated contest takes place at the University of Bolton Stadium, and Plymouth will be hoping to emulate their cup run in 2006-07, where the Pilgrims reached the quarter-finals stage.

Last season, Plymouth got to round two, where they bowed out to Oxford United, and Argyle boss Ryan Lowe will be hoping his side can surpass that feat.

Speaking to the press ahead of the tie, Lowe reflected on his own memories of the competition as a player, which gave him mixed emotions.

As per Argyle’s Twitter feed, he said:

“It would be nice to get a cup run. I left Crewe just before they got Liverpool at Anfield, and I was gutted.”

“The league is our bread and butter, but a run would be great for the club.”

Lowe will be hoping for a response from his players after losing their last two games in all competitions, including a morale-sapping 4-0 defeat to Exeter City in the Devon Derby.

Can Ryan Lowe mastermind a cup run with Plymouth?





The Verdict

This match will be the perfect chance for Ryan Lowe’s side to bounce back, but it will not be easy against a resurgent Bolton side, who are on a three-game winning run under Keith Hill.

Of course, as a League Two side, a cup-run would be fantastic for Argyle financially with the windfall it would bring to the club.
