Wright-Phillips - signed on a free transfer from Southampton earlier this summer - suffered a knee injury in a behind-closed-doors game and is set to be ruled out for six weeks.

It is the second injury blow for Argyle ahead of Saturday's clash at Selhurst Park, as centre-back Chris Barker is sidelined with a torn calf muscle.

Wright-Phillips' place is likely to go to on-loan Blackburn winger Alan Judge - who joined the Pilgrims on a season-long loan earlier this week - while new centre-back Reda Johnson, signed from French club Amiens last week, is poised for his debut in the back four.

Former Palace midfielder Carl Fletcher - who joined Argyle at the start of the summer from the Eagles - is set to feature for Paul Sturrock's side.

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
