Edwards Back, Canavan Out

JOE Edwards returned to the Argyle starting line-up for Tuesday's Emirates FA Cup second-round replay against Bristol Rovers at Home Park.

Edwards came in for central defender Niall Canavan, who was absent from the Pilgrims' squad, as the only change from the team that beat Morecambe 3-0 on Saturday.

With Byron Moore and George Cooper likely to occupy the wing-back slots, it seemed likely that Edwards would start in central midfield, allowing Josh Grant to drop back and cover for Canavan.

Argyle (3-5-2): 24 Alex Palmer (gk); 5 Scott Wootton, 25 Josh Grant, 3 Gary Sawyer (capt); 17 Byron Moore, 7 Antoni Sarcevic, 8 Joe Edwards, 10 Danny Mayor, 32 George Cooper; 16 Joel Grant, 11 Dom Telford. Substitutes (not used): 1 Mike Cooper (gk), 2 Joe Riley, 9 Ryan Taylor, 15 Conor Grant, 18 Billy Clarke, 20 Adam Randell, 39 Zak Rudden.
