Barton handed teenagers Ryan Rydel and Barry Baggley senior debuts as substitutes in last Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Walsall and Rydel was again used from the bench in the midweek reverse at Coventry, with both hoping for a further chance against Argyle.

Striker Ashley Nadesan returned to the starting line-up at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday evening after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Midfielder James Wallace is closing in on a return from a back problem with his progress being closely monitored.

Plymouth manager Derek Adams is likely to have the same squad available to him as the one which secured a 2-1 home victory over Shrewsbury in midweek.

Keeper Kyle Letheren has sat out the last two games with a groin injury he picked up during the 2-0 defeat at Sunderland on March 2, and he continues to be assessed.

Midfielder Antoni Sarcevic returned to the team against the Shrews after completing a two-match ban for 10 bookings.

Long-term absentees Joel Grant and Conor Grant are still missing.
