Keeping Up With...The Wombles
DEREK Adams' Argyle side come up against 10th placed Wimbledon this Saturday at Home Park.
The Dons come into the fixture on the back of a 2-1 victory over play-off chasing Wycombe, a result which ended a poor run of three consecutive defeats on the road. Forward Lyle Taylor scored twice, either side of Michael Harriman's strike for the Chairboys, to earn a 2-1 victory which moved Wimbledon two points behind their rivals with a game in hand.
Neil Ardley's side have strung together a series of good results in recent weeks with draws against promotion chasing Accrington (0-0) and Northampton (1-1) as well as the win against Wycombe which has had a big say in the play-off and automatic promotion standings.
The Wombles have fared well overall on the road, having won five of their past nine on their travels. They have scored wins against Wycombe (2-1), Barnet (2-1), Cambridge (4-1), Notts County (2-0) and Exeter (2-0).
The Pilgrims will need to be wary of Wombles forward Lyle Taylor who has registered 16 goals so far this season. The Monserrat international joined the 13th club of his career in 2015, joining from League 1 side Scunthorpe.
The two sides have already met twice this season with Argyle coming out victorious on both occasions. The Greens won on the opening day of the season as goals from Gregg Wylde and Graham Carey saw them record a 2-0 win.
Adams' side then saw off the Dons 3-2 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, coming from two goals down as strikes from Jake Jervis, Ryan Brunt and Carl McHugh were enough to see them progress.
Historically there is very little to separate the two sides as from ten games both sides have won three times and drawn four times. The two sides first met in 2011 as a Jack Midson brace saw the Dons beat Argyle 2-0 at Home Park. Both sides also have yet to win as the home side.
