Southend v Argyle Line-Up

ARGYLE showed no changes to their starting line-up for Saturday's Sky Bet League One game at Southend United as midfielder Oscar Threlkeld began his fourth spell as a Pilgrim on the substitutes' bench.

Manager Derek Adams stayed true to the players who had begun the New Year's Day 3-0 home win over Oxford United, in which Ruben Lameiras scored twice.

That meant no starting place for Threlkeld, who was named on a bench that also included fit-again Matt Macey and Joe Riley, as well as Lionel Ainsworth.

On-loan Arsenal goalkeeper Macey had missed Argyle's previous two matches with a thigh injury but Kyle Letheren stayed between the posts.

Argyle (4-2-3-1): 21 Kyle Letheren; 23 Ashley Smith-Brown, 5 Ryan Edwards, 14 Niall Canavan,
3 Gary Sawyer; 4 Yann Songo’o, 8 David Fox; 7 Antoni Sarcevic, 11 Ruben Lameiras, 10 Graham Carey; 19 Freddie Ladapo. Substitutes: 1 Matt Macey (gk), 2 Joe Riley, 9 Ryan Taylor, 17 Lionel Ainsworth, 25 Scott Wootton, 26 Oscar Threlkeld, 35 Luke Jephcott.

Southend United (4-3-3): 13 Nathan Bishop; 2 Elvis Bwomono, 6 Michael Turner, 48 John White, 32 Stephen Hendrie; 18 Sam Mantom (capt), 8 Timothee Dieng, 16 Dru Yearwood; 36 Isaac Hutchinson, 10 Simon Cox, 30 Harry Bunn. Substitutes: 4 Luke Hyam, 7 Michael Kightly, 11 Stephen McLaughlin, 20 Michael Klass, 22 Ted Smith (gk), 29 Norman Wabo, 34 Charlie Kelman.
