Us and Burton having similar seasons, it seems. Both coming in with just 3 points from 18 over the last six games after a strong start.

Always tough at Burton but our confidence has improved over the last two 2-2 draws when we could and probably should have won both games. Losing Clark Robertson until December at least has forced a switch to a back three with wing backs, which has led to us finally creating goal-scoring chances while also making us more vulnerable at the back. At least the games are more entertaining!

I'll go for a 2-1 win - Marquis, Curtis

Morecambe had a decent result at the weekend with 10 men.

No new injury concerns for us but unlikely to have anyone back either. Same XI as Saturday I'm guessing, there's not too much we can do!

If we play anything like we did on Saturday we will lose heavily. Rotherham were ridiculously wasteful and threw it away in the last minute. That isn't going to happen every week. Plymouth have shocked me and have started very well. Its always a tough game down there, and with it being a Tuesday night under the lights its not going to be any easier.

Any Crewe fans travelling down there deserve a medal, given our league position and current form. I wouldn't be shocked if it was our first sub 100 league following in quite a long time.

My prediction is that the Pilgrims will dominate and come out comfortable 3-1 winners.

Confidence beginning to rise at Cambridge and a home game vs. Gills seems like a good opportunity to keep the points coming in.

A draw wouldn't be a disaster but I fancy us to nick the win.

No need to change much after Fleetwood, but assuming he's fit I'd bring Jones in for Okedina. I like Okedina a lot but reckon Jones is just a little more reliable at this stage. Interesting to see if we go two up top for this one.

Can only see a Wigan win tomorrow unfortunately. That will be 5 without a win if so.

Ipswich away, if we play like we did Saturday then a point minimum if not a win but if Cook finds the correct formula we could just get battered.

That's what I thought when we played Ipswich. Someone is going to get a dicking when/if they click and I hope that's not against us. It wasn't.

Home to Fleetwood, think it will be harder than people expect, be good to keep the run going though.

Away to Sunderland.

Of our back 3 last year, the best in League 2, one has moved to the National League and the other two are injured.

If we can get a draw, I'll snap your hand off for it now. Lee Johnson will be dying to get one over us though because we sacked Daddy a few years ago and apparently we didn't know what we were doing. Daddy failed to get Torquay up last year, Daddy's replacement turned us from relegation fodder to champions. I know who I'd rather have in the dugout.

I think we are looking a bit tired.

The conferencing facilities of Home Park have been the venue for the largest vaccination programme in Plymouth. Since February 250,000 have been vaccinated. Tomorrow night‘s game is dedicated to the NHS. Fans are asked to wear blue, and some 1,000 tickets for NHS workers and their families have been donated by the club and crowdfunded by supporters.

With all due respect this is a must win from our point of view. No home win going into October would be a disaster. We’ve looked more of a team in the last couple of games. Less open, just haven’t got out of first gear yet. Think we will blow teams away but I’m not sure we’ll have the consistency yet. There’s a fair bit of pressure on cook for the one for me. Not sure what formation you play but we’ll be 4231. 2-1 home win I hope

We play 4-3-3, fully expect you to blow teams away once it clicks just hoping it’s after tomorrow

We also play 4,2,3,1.....This system is good when it works but will always give the opposition chances.

Really want to win tonight but you sound fast and dangerous, pass well and create lots of chances away from home.
How do you think you lot will perform in wind and cold rain?

Lincoln are the best team I've seen this season but can they do it on a cold Tuesday night in Morecambe?

You lads have had an excellent start to the season, what is the big difference between this team and last years ( indeed if any ? ). Certainly as hard an away game we have faced so far but confidence wont be lacking on our part. We really are struggling with injuries and hope Morton is back as he has been on excellent form. The young lads who have been 'drafted' in have performed heroically but there is no substitute for experience. One thing is certain we wont keep a clean sheet tonight so we need to a goal or two to have a chance. At best a fighting draw but defeat will be no shame against MKD

Moore’s selections are becoming increasingly frustrating, namely Marvin Johnson at left back and Callum Paterson on the right wing.

Johnson is exactly what you’d expect from a winger playing full back - good going forward, not good defensively.

if we played diagonals to Paterson’s head so he’d be having aerial duels against full backs opposed to centre half’s, I’d get that, it could be effective. But we don’t. He has no pace and little technical ability.

Sorry for laughing but I’m so glad that you’re getting the full Moore experience along with the scintillating interviews :fl:

Our reserve defenders are so far from League One standard it's not even funny, Sunderland could get a hatful today

This is embarrassing. Sunderland absolutely schooling us, they'll get 5 or 6 here

Too much power from Max on this header then ?

Via BBC.

“Big goal in the big game in League One and it's an absolute shocker! Max Power has headed a long ball past his goalkeeper from 30 yards and has watched it trickle into the net to give Sheffield Wednesday the lead at Wigan”

I have no idea how we are level!! Worst first half of the season by a mile. We’ve been absolutely shite. We look knackered. Leko has been absolutely superb for them

To be fair, I called it wrong about Paterson tonight! He’s playing behind Gregory but he has been right wing every other game.

Pretty poop half from Cambridge, not much control although in fairness it's pretty windy. Can still get something from this though as we're only 1 down.

Not convinced by O'Neil in a midfield two.

Sorry to say Baptiste is finished.............Just makes too many errors for me.
All this possession is great but teams have worked us out. MJ Williams Dapo and Santos are the only three who are consistent week in week out.

Wigan have been the better side so far tonight but we go in 1 up. We’ll have to to keep hold of the ball a lot better in the second half. If we persist with the punts forward they’ll get their goal(s) eventually.

Yeah I agree. We have zero creativity when Sheehan isn’t playing. Johnston defo should have started. He’s much better at carrying the ball out of defence. Declan John is much much better on the ball than Gordon but defensively he’s been shocking tonight. We are desperate for Bakayoko to come back to have a bit of physicality too.
