ARGYLE'S win against Crawley Town on Saturday put the Pilgrims top of League 2...
...but with the attention turning to local rivals Exeter City and the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, who will your money be on?

A draw is valued at 5/2, although the last time Argyle and Exeter drew at Home Park was New Years Day of 1996. A win for the Grecians is valued at 3/1, who's form over the last five games is; won two, lost two, and drawn one. Argyle are 4/9 to qualify via any method, whilst Exeter City are 13/8.
Argyle have won their last two games 2-1, and you can get odds of 15/2 for a third successive 2-1 victory at Home Park.
Reuben Reid has scored five in his last three games against Exeter City, and is 7/4 to score anytime against the Grecians. Furthermore, Reuben grabbed his third goal of the season against Crawley Town on Saturday, and is 66/1 to repeat the hat trick he scored against Exeter City last time out. Argyle's top scorer this season.
In the last round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, Argyle ran out 3-2 winners at AFC Wimbledon - for a repeat scoreline the odds are 28/1. That game, broke a 913 day run in which Argyle had not come from behind to win a game. For Argyle to come from behind and win, with Exeter winning at half-time, you can get value of 28/1 also.
The Pilgrims are 4/6 to score the last goal, whilst the Grecians are 6/4. The same odds stand for either side to score the first goal too. Argyle have scored two goals in the last five minutes, and conceded two goals in the last five minutes in their previous four games. For the first goal to be scored after 81 minutes is 20/1, and the second-half's first goal to be scored after the 86th minute is 11/1.
That's worth a punt, surely?
