New boys set for Plymouth bows
Plymouth are set to give competitive debuts to summer signings Rhys Griffiths and Johnny Gorman as they prepare to host Portsmouth.
Griffiths has joined the npower League Two side on a one-year deal after impressing on trial, putting his career as a firefighter on hold to make the step up to professional football for the first time.
Gorman, meanwhile, is on loan at Home Park from Wolves until January.
Argentine winger Andres Gurrieri may also make his first full appearance to become the first South American to play for the Pilgrims.
Fellow summer signing Jamie Lowry will miss out as he is expected to be sidelined until late October with a ankle ligament injury.
New skipper Darren Purse will wear the captain's armband for the first time after a successful operation on an injured toe over the summer.
