Under-18s v Bournemouth preview

ARGYLE Under-18s will play their last home game of the EFL Youth Alliance season on Tuesday, when they host AFC Bournemouth at Harper's Park, kick-off 1pm.

The Young Pilgrims currently sit eighth in the table, which splits into two Mertit Leagues after this game, dependent upon finishing in the top or bottom half.

Recently, first-team call-ups, FA Youth Cup and South West Peninsula League demands has seen the Pilgrims field younger than usual line-ups.

It has been a good season for the Young Greens, with the FA Youth Cup fifth-round match against Fulham still to come at Home Park on February 7.

Opponents Bournemouth sit third in the table, nine points behind leaders Exeter City, but with two games in hand. So the Cherries will be desperate to pick up three points against the Pilgrims, whereas Argyle will want to put in a strong performance to finish  off their home fixtures in style.
