Literally anything can happen in this one.

I'm going for a 8-7 home defeat. We will be 7-0 up going into added time and then it will go bat shit crazy.

Tisdale to remain philosophical and blame the pitch.

Crowd 400,000

We're in decent form so I'd like to think we could beat them. They really aren't anything remotely special.

And this is the frustrating thing....We are as good as them, if not better on our day but they've been largely consistent whereas we've let ourselves down on too many occasions.

Fancy us to win on Saturday but we've got too much ground to male up to reach the playoffs now.

Yeah definitely, playoffs are gone and have been for a while. Doesn't stop me wanting to win this game any less than if we really had something riding on picking up 3 points. Let's at least fuck up their season.

Can never get excited about this fixture. Lose and its the end of the world but win and its just another win over the 6 toed clowns from up the road. Will be happy when Sunday arrives and we can worry about the big games which we have ahead.

Fucking get in Ollie Watkins! This lad is special...6 goals in 7 games and a 25 yard screamer to win it in the 93rd minute in front of a packed Big Bank. Totally amazing.

To be fair we were gash for 75 mins but as soon as McCormick dropped a bollock the confidence just went from Argyle and we looked far better. Plus bringing on Noble made a massive difference, that bloke is class.

2 points off the play offs now and we are on fire....

So frustrating to lose that game after dominating for so long

McCormack being playing bad since Northampton at home so no real surprise.

Just like to say I was in big bank end today and the exeter fans were superb even when they went behind and we're playing so poorly they were really behind there team.

Is that your usual defence exeter fans?how long do u think u will be able to keep Watkins for?

Ridiculously brave and talented player is Watkins, his performances over the last month won't have gone unnoticed. 6 goals, 3 assists and the League 2 player of the month from his last 7 games is fantastic and it's great to see a homegrown talent win it for us like that. Plymouth were the better side up until we scored when we really turned it on. Let's just keep winning our games and see what happens.

No, usually we have Moore-Taylor our captain in CB but he's injured so we were playing a 37 year old Left Back at Right Back. We are awful defensively though.

Watkins will be here next season I expect but if he keeps the form going he will be gone fairly soon. He's still a rough diamond but given regular games for a year or two I expect he will make us some mega bucks.

Yeah was gunna say he looked a bit rough in places had a little run before hand should've passed but lost the ball.

Yeah your defence today was very dodgy especially left centre half I thought.u must have a great chance of play offs now and we'll probably lose to u there.tisdale seems to be able to change stuff during the matches against us to win it

Embarrassing from Adams in his post match interview. Lucky winner? That's the best goal you'll see in League 2 all season.

Obvious really. You were better than us. Thought 1st 10 mins we edged it but when Oakley went off we lost our composure in the middle and you started to dominate us.
