CARL McHugh returns to the Argyle starting line-up after missing Saturday's game with Exeter through injury.McHugh's return to the side is bad news for Josh Simpson, who drops to the bench.
He is joined on the bench by Deane Smalley; it is five days short of a year since Smalley last featured in a matchday squad. After playing in the 0-0 draw at York City on November 29 last year, Deane injured his cruciate ligaments in training. Welcome back, Deane.
