The Weekend Fixtures
ARGYLE will complete their Carlsberg South-West Peninsula League adventure with a thrilling final game at Coach Road on Saturday afternoon – kick-off 3pm.
The Pilgrims have secured third place in the division but still have a major role in who wins the title, as leaders Tavistock are the visitors tomorrow. Tavvy are level on points with Exmouth going into the final day but they do have a superior goal difference.
The weekend of football actually begins on Friday with the visit of Newport in the EFL Merit League 2 and the Pilgrims are currently second in the table, just behind Forest Green Rovers on goal difference.
As we know, the first-team travel to Accrington Stanley on Saturday for a massive game in Sky Bet League One and Argyle Ladies are also reaching the climax of their campaign, as they welcome champions Coventry United to Bovey Tracey on Sunday in the FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division – kick-off 2pm.
Argyle suffered their worst defeat of the season in the reverse fixture, losing 9-1 in the reverse fixture, but put up a far better fight in a 2-1 cup defeat to Coventry the following week. The Pilgrims will be almost at full strength, with just Becky Dandridge unavailable.
Argyle joint manager Trevor Rodd said: “They [Coventry] have won the league, so we will give them all the respect. It will be a tough game against a good side and no-one gives you a league title. We are still on target for a top five finish with just the visit to Watford in the last game to go.”
