Injured duo absent again for Pilgrims
Plymouth will be without Rene Gilmartin and Curtis Nelson again as they look to pull away from the npower League Two drop zone against Oxford.
French shotstopper Gilmartin has been missing since limping out of the 0-0 draw with Accrington at the end of January with a hamstring injury while Nelson, who also has a hamstring problem, has missed the last two games. Gozie Ugwu made his debut as a late substitute in the win over Aldershot after recovering from an ankle injury which had sidelined the striker since he made the loan move from Reading. Fellow forward Nick Chadwick misses out once again through suspension after his red card in early January. Argyle, unbeaten in four, are in 20th position in the table, only two points clear of the relegation zone.
