Stanley v Plymouth Argyle

11 March 2016

The Reds are at the Wham Stadium tomorrow for the second of three successive home games.

High flying Plymouth are the visitors with both teams still eyeing promotion to League One.[vc_accordion][vc_accordion_tab title="The Opposition"]

Argyle have been among the pacesetters in League Two throughout the season and remain in an automatic promotion spot ahead of the game.

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 and finished in a play-off place last season, losing to Wycombe in the semi-finals.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Manager"]

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.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="One to Watch"]After previously playing for Adams at Ross County, he was reunited with his former boss at Plymouth in the summer of the 2015.

Having come through the ranks of Birmingham City, Jervis has played for the likes of Swindon, Preston and Carlisle on loan before moving to Turkey to join Elazigspor.

He has proven to be prolific at the Pilgrims so far and will be looking to continue this.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Form Guide"][vc_text_separator title="Stanley: WDLDL" color="juicy_pink"]Stanley are without a win in their last four games following the midweek defeat to Portsmouth.

That was a first loss at home since October and the Reds will be keen for a return to winning ways against the Pilgrims.

John Coleman's side are sixth in the table, eight points behind their visitors.[vc_text_separator title="Plymouth Argyle: DDWLD" color="green"]Argyle have tasted defeat just once in their last six matches, with that loss coming two games ago at Barnet.

The Pilgrims are third in the table and only kept off second spot by goal difference.

They trail league leaders Northampton by 13 points.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Stanley Team News"]There's no new injury news with the longer term absentees still ruled out.

Josh Windass is nearing a return following surgery as is defender Dean Winnard but this weekend will be too soon for both.

Joe Wright and Terry Gornell are both also ruled out, with Seamus Conneely hoping to be recovered from illness to feature.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Admission Details"]
