The 45

FOOTBALL may feel like a distant memory but it was not so long ago that Argyle were approaching the conclusion of a thrilling season in Sky Bet League Two.

Ryan Lowe’s Pilgrims were flying high in the promotion race when football was suspended in response to the Coronavirus and we want to test your knowledge on the campaign.

Argyle have played 45 competitive fixtures in the 2019-20 season and we have one question from every game. See how you get on and we will reveal the answers on Friday evening.

Just for some incentive, we have added in some scoring categories below:
