Argyle @ Carlisle - the Line-Up

Same Again at Brunton Park

11 January 2020

ARGYLE went into their Sky Bet League Two game at Carlisle United with teenage striking sensation Luke Jephcott again leading their line.

Academy product Jephcott, 19, who scored twice on his seasonal debut in the previous week's fine 3-1 win at Scunthorpe United, kept his place in an unchanged starting line-up as the Pilgrims sought their third successive away win.

His partner in attack at Brunton Park was his fellow scorer against the Iron, Byron Moore; new signing Ryan Hardie, who joined Argyle on loan from Blackpool on Friday, started life as a Pilgrim on the substitutes' bench, alongside another young home-produced striker, Klaidi Lolos.

Fellow loan player Tyreeq Bakinson continued in central midfield after having joined the Pilgrims from Bristol City the week previously.

Carlisle's starting line-up included two former Pilgrims - forward Nathan Thomas, who made 24 appearances between 2013-15 after being released by Sunderland, and defender Gethin Jones, who was loaned from Everton at the back end of the 2014-15 season and played seven times.

Carlisle United (4-3-3): 1 Adam Collin (capt); 14 Gethin Jones, 17 Byron Webster, 6 Aaron Hayden, 5 Jonathan Mellish; 19 Jack Bridge, 8 Mike Jones, 12 Elliot Watt; 11 Harry McKirdy, 9 Hallam Hope, 7 Nathan Thomas. Substitutes: 3 Jack Iredale, 10 Stefan Scougall, 15 Taylor Charters, 22 Louis Gray (gk), 24 Olufela Olomola, 25 Ryan Loft, 33 Max Hunt.

Argyle (3-5-2): 24 Alex Palmer; 5 Scott Wootton, 6 Niall Canavan, 3 Gary Sawyer (capt); 8 Joe Edwards, 7 Antoni Sarcevic, 14 Tyreeq Bakinson, 10 Danny Mayor, 32 George Cooper; 17 Byron Moore, 31 Luke Jephcott. Substitutes: 1 Mike Cooper (gk), 2 Joe Riley, 15 Conor Grant, 16 Joel Grant, 18 Ryan Hardie, 19 Klaidi Lolos, 20 Adam Randell.
