Plymouth Argyle vs Walsall Match Preview
Walsall enjoyed an excellent 3-0 win at Gillingham on Saturday which may well have given them the boost they need to end Plymouth’s three-match victory sequence.
The Saddlers had been on a lean run of form before their weekend triumph in which striker Andy Cook took his goals tally for the season to 15 with a hat-trick in the first 47 minutes.
It meant Walsall remain five points ahead of Plymouth in the League One table, even though Tuesday’s hosts are on a strong run at present as they try to escape the relegation zone.
Argyle had been having a poor campaign, but it has taken a real turn for the better since the very first day of 2019 with successive wins against Oxford, Southend and Coventry.
Manager Derek Adams will be hoping the upturn marks a repeat of last term when the Pilgrims improved dramatically from January onwards and only finished one place outside the play-offs when losing their last two matches cost them dearly.
This is a rearranged fixture from FA Cup third-round weekend when Walsall were in action away to Championship club Bolton and led at the break before succumbing in the second half.
However, Dean Keates’ men should be full of confidence after their weekend success and having collected more points on the road than at home this season, we will back them to end Plymouth’s current spree.
