Team news

Plymouth Argyle have made a great start to the season in Division Two, and currently lie in 3rd position.

Rather like Palace, they have defender who their top goal scorer so far this season - Paul Wotton has so far netted 4 goals.

Palace have suffered injuries to three key players during the game against Burnley last Saturday. Tony Popovic, Matt Clarke and Dougie Freedman are unlikely to feature against Plymouth.

Both Popovic and Clarke suffered bruised bones, and could be out for 2-3 weeks. The first diagnosis feared that they had both had cartilage problems, but this was dismissed after further checks were completed. Dean Austin and Alex Kolinko are the likely candidates to replace the injured pair.

Freedman was subbed late on during the Burnley draw, suffering from a strained hamstring. He hasn't trained with the squad at all this week, so is unlikely to be risked for a first round Worthington Cup tie.

Francis will probably opt for a pairing of Andy Johnson and Dele Adebola up front.

Palace old boys


Frenchman Larrieu arrived at Argyle with compatriot David Friio on a short-term contract. The keeper was with French club Valence last season, but before his arrival at Home Park, he had been a free agent. He soon ousted Jon Sheffield and has proved to be a great shot-stopper. He has now established himself as the undisputed first-choice at the club. If Palace are to progress against the high flying second division club, they will have to get past the form keeper.
