Thought Id get this match thread up early. Got a bad feeling about this one. Would love 3 points, but I would take 1.

How do Plymouth try and play?

Just from looking at the league table, you're in danger of opening up a very nice gap if results go your way over the next game or two. I think this will be a sterner test than Orient, where our own tactical mistakes cost us.

We'll also be without Graham due to his red card - he has been our best player over the last month since arriving on loan.

We are more effective and more entertaining when Hylton starts, so I hope he does.

We're going to miss Jordan Graham, who I think has been excellent since he arrived. I would guess it means Danny Hylton comes back in, but I hope it doesn't mean Roofe gets pushed out wide?

No idea what style Plymouth play, hopefully an open footballing style, rather than a direct, in your face style? I think there will be goals in it, and that come the end of the season it will have proven to be a pivotal match regarding the promotion positions.

Really looking forward to it. Good set of fans too, not complete bell ends, with inferiority complexes, like some that we have faced recently.

We play good football. It'll be a tough test, we are dangerous on the counter away from home.

My sentiments entirely

We are going to miss Jordam Graham who has been a sensation for the past few weeks, however I hope ex-grecian Liam Seracombe will repeat his MOTM performance of last Saturday against his 'old west country enemy'.

Obviously we are going to have to keep an eye on Reuben Read (what a superb volley he scored last Saturday) and Jervis is up there with the leagues leading scorers.

Looking forward to it.

A bump on the road, we were never going to continue this winning streak all season.

Both us & Oxford will be up there come the end of the season.

No idea how that was only 1-0.

Could have been 3 or 4 up by half time.

Still, a good win for us.

Ecellent win against a very good side.
I've no doubt both teams will be in contention at the end of the season.

It was a good game, between two sides trying to play football on the floor, and the best team won. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I don't think the top three will be all that different come the end of the season, although I don't think we'll be third!

It was nice to see another side playing the right way and also be gracious in defeat. Bit of a contrast to last Saturday and the whining Orient fans off the pitch and aerial bombardment on it.
