ANTONI Sarcevic returned to the Pilgrims' midfield at Port Vale on Saturday after completing his three-match suspension, replacing Joe Riley in the Argyle starting line-up.
Joe Edwards, who again captained the side, looked likely to move to right wing-back for Riley, who has suffered from an arm problem in recent weeks.
Edwards' recent role as central midfielder appeared set to be assumed by Jose Baxter, with Sarcevic and Danny Mayor either side of him.
The attack again comprised Ryan Taylor and former Port Vale winger Byron Moore, looking to score for the third successive game.
