Away Fans' Guide | Fleetwood Town
The Greens make their first away trip of the 22/23 Sky Bet League One season on Saturday with Scott Brown's Fleetwood Town the opposition at Highbury Stadium (Kick-off 3pm).
Argyle will be heading to the Fylde coast in good spirits following the opening day 1-0 victory against Barnsley at Home Park. Finn Azaz's debut goal was enough to separate the two sides as the Greens came away with the three points.
Manager Steven Schumacher was pleased with his side's 'perfect start' but knows the Greens must build on the Barnsley win by picking up another three points at the notoriously difficult Highbury Stadium.
