Alex looking to take unbeaten run to four games against Lowe's Plymouth side this evening.
Ryan Lowe’s Plymouth Argyle will be a wounded animal when they arrive in South Cheshire this evening. The Pilgrims have suffered five straight defeats in League One but did enjoy an FA Cup win over Lincoln City in the midst of that barren run of results.
Plymouth may have had an indifferent run of late but they have adjusted reasonably well to life in League One after securing automatic promotion along with Crewe last season. Plymouth finished third on the points per game basis and deservedly took their place in the higher division.
A 3-0 defeat away at Bristol Rovers at the weekend, leaves Lowe’s side in 16th place on 19 points.
Ahead of our encounter this evening (kick off 7pm) David Artell said: “There are a few connections with us and Plymouth, both with their management team and players, so that adds a bit to do it.
“They will know plenty about us and we will know plenty about them.
“They are on a bit of poor run in terms of their results but I don’t think those results have reflected the performances. That was certainly the case against Bristol Rovers at the weekend. It was never a 3-0 game. They were done by two early set-pieces and had chances to get back into the game but couldn’t take them.
“Their performance didn’t deserve a 3-0 defeat but when you have lost four on the spin, that can happen and your luck goes against you.
“They will be looking to snap out of their run as soon as possible and we have to make sure they carry it on by beating them.
“They have good players. We know that. We know about Byron (Moore) Coops (George Cooper) and Conor Grant, who was on loan here with us.
“They also have Danny Mayor back from suspension so that will be a major boost for them.
He added: “They are a dangerous opponent and we have to make sure we play well enough to make sure that their poor run continues.”
