    Well the only thing to say about this fixture is it is a deffo must win game if ever there was one. There are so many permutations to this game that it is a bit difficult to make much comment at all. We can win it. There is no doubt about that. Will we win it is another question altogether. Will the pressure tell? Will they fold as they have on a number of occasions? Will Scunthorpe throw the kitchen sink in and surprise people? Will Sunderland do us a favour? Will Sunderland not bother and save it for the play off games? Will Southend fold anyway? Will Southend surprise everyone and play out of their skins?

    Well you can ask a thousand and one more questions than the above and still come up short with an answer. What I ask for is for the players to turn up and give it a real go. No matter what they result at the end of the game, if they have done that and can be seen to have done that then I will say fair do's and applaud them off. If they cave in like they have lately then that will be unforgivable in front of a capacity crowd. They don't deserve a full house given what they have produced this season but once more the Green Army turns up and supports. We can't do anymore so it is up to them now. No more excuses for any of them if they roll over and I will wish them all the scrap heap if that happens. Gonna be a bum squeaking time that's for sure.

    It's tight when you're not in control of your own destiny. You could draw and stay up. You could win and still go down.
    I hope you stay up - Plymouth is too big a city to have its team in League Two (as is Bradford of course).
    And if we make a dog's dinner of the playoffs there would at least be the Battle of the Ports (I hate Sky's 'Dockyard Derby - how can you have a derby between teams 180 mile apart?)

    The Royal Navy and history devonFRATTONiser. Our nearest "derby" this season was 120 miles away but we are used to that.

    If you mean Exeter and obviously you do then if we play them so be it whether it's in league one or two. I'm not one who "hates Exeter" and am happy for all Devon sides to do the best they can.

    Well the big days here everyone.....Now I'm just checking.

    1.....Have you got your lucky socks on....which one did you put on first ?
    2.....Have you also got on your lucky underpants ?
    3.....Have you got your lucky rabbits foot/ pebble/ hankerchief/ coin/ argyle shirt/ scarf....etc... with you.
    4.....Have you had the same match drink before getting to the ground.
    5.....Whatever works for you please do it etc.

    Hold on we've been losing for five games on the trot....has one of you let Argyle down by forgetting something....OR are we just crap.

    Loads of support from ex players on #OneMoreRound:

    Ryan Brunt
    Connor Hourihane
    Paul Mariner
    Peter Hartley ("To my beloved Pilgrims"......!)
    Romain Larrieu
    Kari Arnason
    David Norris (may be attending the game)
    David Frio
    Reuben Reid
    Matt Lecointe


    Fight one more round

    When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the centre of the ring,

    Fight one more round

    When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard,

    Fight one more round

    When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep,

    Fight one more round

    Remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.”

    No Macey...is he injured ?

    No real surprises in Nancekivell's selection......what formation will they play and how up for it are they.
