Stanley v Plymouth

16 December 2016

Stanley return to the Wham Stadium tomorrow with three points on the agenda.

The Reds host League Two leaders Plymouth Argyle looking to turn around their run of disappointing league results.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Reds" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fa"]Two teams involved in the play-offs at the end of last season meet again with contrasting fortunes this season, much to Stanley's frustration.

The Reds host Plymouth for the first time since a win in March put them in a strong position to win promotion to League One.

Now the priority is picking up league points to climb away from the bottom two, with John Coleman's team currently sitting just a place from the relegation spots.[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Form" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34eb"]Defeat at Leyton Orient brought an end to Stanley's mini run of two games unbeaten in league and cup.

They're looking for a first home win, and a first league win, since beating Blackpool 2-1 in mid-October.

The Reds are 22nd in League Two, three points ahead of Cheltenham in the second relegation spot.[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]

The Reds are also hopeful that Billy Kee will be available again, with full back Zak Vyner back in the picture after playing in the Lancashire Senior Cup in midweek.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Opposition" tab_id="1470412818546-8d7f7dab-f030"]After play-off final defeat to AFC Wimbledon last season Argyle have returned with a sense of renewed purpose to get themselves into League One.

They lead the way heading into the game, two points clear of second placed Carlisle.

The Pilgrims were in the Championship as recently as 2010 before a relegation that began the slide into the fourth tier.

They've been in League Two since 2011.

[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Manager" tab_id="1470412819079-79ad13b3-86a8"]Adams made Argyle his second club as a manager in June 2015 after a highly successful career in Scotland, first as a player and then on the other side of the touchline.

Immediately following a successful, 14-year playing career, including stints at Aberdeen, over 150 games for Motherwell, and Ross County, Adams was elevated to a managerial role at County, guiding them to two league titles in five seasons.

Either side of a short spell as assistant manager of Hibernian, the Glaswegian established the Dingwall-based Staggies as a top Scottish Premiership side, as well as managing them to a Scottish FA Cup final – beating Hibs and Celtic along the way – and two Scottish Challenge Cup finals.

He led Argyle to the play-offs in his first season at Home Park.[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]
