Argyle boss Carl Fletcher has no fresh injury concerns.

Captain Darren Purse missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Rotherham because of a persistent toe problem and it remains to be seen whether the centre-back will return for the trip.

In his absence, Curtis Nelson stepped in at the heart of the Pilgrims defence and impressed the manager.

"I thought Nelse came in and did well," Fletcher told the Plymouth Herald. "Obviously, we missed Darren because of his size, which we could have done with, but Nelse stood firm and won a high percentage of his headers."

Paul Wotton remains a long-term injury absentee for Argyle after undergoing a back operation last month, but fellow midfielder Conor Hourihane is available again having missed the trip to Rotherham after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.

Loanees Scott Griffiths and Guy Madjo have been given permission from their parent clubs to feature for Argyle but Burnley striker Alex MacDonald can not.
