Sky Bet League Two

The Plymouth XI that Lowe could look to use against Swindon tomorrow

Published

on

Plymouth Argyle are without a win in seven as they travel to Swindon Town in League Two tomorrow for the second time this week.

Ryan Lowe took Bury to League Two promotion last season, and he’s been brought in to Plymouth to do the same.

But the 41-year-old hasn’t had the start to life on the south coast he’d have been hoping for. His side sit 12th in League Two.

There’s still plenty time to turn his season around though and after Tuesday night’s 3-0 win at Swindon in the EFL Trophy, his side will be confident in going there and doing the same again this weekend.

Here we take a look at the starting eleven Lowe should field tomorrow.

Lowe made four changes on Tuesday night from the side that drew 2-2 with Scunthorpe United last weekend.

Michael Cooper came in in-goal, whilst Niall Canavan, Joe Edwards and Zak Rudden also started.

It was a different set-up for Plymouth to their draw against Scunthorpe – they fielded a 3-1-4-2 as apposed to the 3-4-3 seen at Scunthorpe.

Lowe will likely stick with the 3-1-4-2 at Swindon after it worked so well there. Will Aimson will likely return to the team in the back three, having become more prominent figure for Plymouth recently.

Alex Palmer should return in goal, with Aimson in-between Joshua Grant and Scott Wootton in a back three – both Grant and Wootton looked solid in Tuesday’s win at Swindon.


The sole midfielder in-front of the defenders will likely be Joe Riley should Lowe opt for this formation. He bagged himself a goal on Tuesday and helped his team to their second clean sheet in three games.

In the midfield four, Joe Edwards is expected to keep his spot in the right, with Conor Grant and Antoni Sarcevic in the centre – the pair have started the last two league games there. 

Callum McFadzean was left out in midweek, and will surely come straight back in on the left for tomorrow – he’s got three goals and three assists for the season.

Up-front may prove to be a trickier selection for Lowe, with Rudden bagging his first goal of the season on Tuesday. 

But it’s probable that if Lowe plays two up-front tomorrow, he’ll choose Joel Grant, who’s recently return from injury, along with joint-top scorer Ryan Taylor.

Swindon will want revenge after their midweek defeat, and after losing four of their last five in all competitions will be raring to rectify things in League Two.

Will Plymouth Argyle finish in the top-half of League two this season?
