Rochdale boss Keith Hill has no new selection worries ahead of his side's last game of the campaign.

Dale picked up no injuries as they were comfortably beaten by Oxford at the weekend - a result which ended their six-match unbeaten run.

Opponents Argyle remain in danger of going down on the last day but Hill will not allow his side to end the season with a limp display.

"For me there's no end of season games, they're games and they mean something," he told the club's official website.

"I understand how players react and what these games mean, or don't mean, having been a player myself, but they've never been a manager. It goes on my record, not theirs."

Hill is expected to be without Ritchie Jones (ankle) once again while Andrew Tutte, Rhys Bennett (both knee) and Reece Gray (broken leg) are all definitely out.

Plymouth will be without Lee Cox and Warren Feeney once again as they look to secure League Two survival.

John Sheridan's side make the trip knowing a point would be enough to secure fourth-tier football next season and they could stay up regardless if results in other games go their way.

And Sheridan, who has taken 28 points out of a possible 54 since taking charge, will be without Swindon loanee Cox who suffered a shoulder injury and Feeney who has been missing since January with an ankle problem.

A number of Argyle's fringe players picked up some valuable game time in midweek, with Tyler Harvey netting in a Devon Bowl Final win over Torquay.

That match which saw Rene Gilmartin and Luke Young, unused substitutes last Saturday in the defeat to Rotherham, feature.
