Argyle and Cheltenham Town’s Under-18s will try once again to complete their FA Youth Cup first round tie on Wednesday night at Home Park.

Last week, the two sides managed just a few minutes before the tempestuous weather conditions forced an early abandonment.

Seven days on, Darren Way and his players will once again take on the Robins in the prestigious competition, and do so on the back of an excellent 1-0 win against Category 2 Academy Swansea City in the PDL Cup on Saturday.

The Young Pilgrims played Cheltenham earlier this season, in league action, and won 4-2 thanks to two goals from Will Jenkins Davies, and one each from Joe Hatch and Cole Gibbings.

Last season, Argyle beat Mangotsfield and MK Dons in the Youth Cup before bowing out in round three against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Speaking to Argyle TV, Way said: “It was obviously disappointing to be called off after five minutes, but I think it was the right decision. We felt sorry for Cheltenham, coming all the way down.

“We’ve got a game in since, against Swansea, which went really well, and we’ve had players involved with the first team. We had another opportunity to get together to work on what we need to work on.

“I want to see us playing the Plymouth way. We’ve got controllables that we feel we can control in terms of being the hardest-working team. We like to think everyone can lead on the pitch and make sure they play the game and not the occasion.

“For the second-years that shared that journey, I know how important it is going to be for them, that they get those same feelings. For parents, it is a great environment, to see your son play at Home Park. Hopefully we get a few extra supporters; we would really appreciate that, because we’re trying to make sure we get that home advantage.”

The match will be played at Home Park and kicks off at 7pm. Tickets are £5 for adults, £3 for season-ticket holders and concessions. Tickets are still valid for supporters who attended last week’s curtailed fixture.

Live commentary will be available on Argyle TV and is free for current subscribers.
