Fixtures 2017-18 - Long Hauls
THE Green Army will make their longest trip of the 2017-18 Sky Bet League One campaign in early November.
The Pilgrims take on Bradford City – and the not so small matter of a 660-mile round-trip to Yorkshire – on Saturday, November 11, a little under five years since their last visit to the ground where their last win was a 5-1 thumping in 1993, when Dwight Marshall scored a hat-trick.
That trip comes less than a month after another long-haul, for a midweek match against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday, October 17 – one of three formidable journeys to the north west during the season.
Argyle visit Fleetwood Town (650 miles) on Saturday, March 10, having won 4-0 on their last visit to Highbury Stadium in 2014, and travel to Blackpool on Saturday, December 30 hoping to replicate last season’s 1-0 Nauris Bulvitis-inspired 1-0 victory.
The Pilgrims are also on their travels for Easter, journeying to Lincolnshire to face Scunthorpe United on Monday, April 2.
The last day of the season will see a trip to Gillingham on Saturday, May 5, with a 5.30pm kick-off.
All fixtures are subject to confirmation.
