Scunthorpe v Argyle - the Line-Up

Same Again

27 October 2018

ARGYLE went into Saturday's Sky Bet League One game at Scunthorpe United with an unchanged starting line-up.

Manager Derek Adams opted for precisely the same 11 that had begun the previous Tuesday's impressive 3-1 home win over Gillingham.

That meant that Conor Grant continued at left-back, starting in the position for only the second time in his career, while Yann Songo'o and former Scunthorpe youth-team graduate Niall Canavan remained the centre-back partnership.

Another old Iron, Jamie Ness, was included in a three-man midfield which had performed so well against the Gills, alongside captain David Fox - happily recovered from a foot injury - and Antoni Sarcevic.

The division's in-form forward Freddie Ladapo - four goals in two games - led a forward line in which Graham Carey was fit to play after a stomach problem that saw him substituted in midweek, and in which Joel Grant was again preferred to Ruben Lameiras.

Scunthorpe recalled three players to a starting 11 that lost 1-0 at Blackpool in midweek, with James Horsfield, George Thomas and Ike Ugbo replacing Funso Ojo, Andy Dales and Cameron Burgess.

Argyle (4-3-3): 1 Matt Macey, 22 Tafari Moore, 4 Yann Songo'o, 14 Niall Canavan, 15 Conor Grant; 8 David Fox (capt), 6 Jamie Ness, 7 Antoni Sarcevic; 10 Graham Carey, 19 Freddie Ladapo, 16 Joel Grant. Substitutes: 11 Ruben Lameiras, 13 Stuart O’Keefe, 20 Gregg Wylde, 21 Kyle Letheren (gk), 23 Ashley Smith-Brown, 24 Peter Grant, 35 Luke Jephcott.

Scunthorpe United (4-3-3): 25 Jak Alnwick, 2 Jordan Clarke, 23 Rory McArdle (capt), 20 Charlie Goode, 3 Cameron Borthwick-Jackson; 49 Ryan Colclough, 8 James Horsfield, 14 James Perch, 10 Stephen Humphrys; 9 Ike Ugbo, 18 George Thomas. Substitutes: 12 Andy Dales, 17 Lee Novak, 21 Cameron Burgess, 22 Levi Sutton, 27 Jonathan Flatt (gk), 29 Kyle Wootton, 33 Lewis Butroid.
