Plymouth have no fresh injury worries for the clash with Accrington as they look to bounce back from Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Scunthorpe.

The Pilgrims slipped to 17th after defeat at Glanford Park and they have now won just one of their last five games in all competitions.

But manager John Sheridan has a full squad at his disposal with the exception of long-term injury victim Matt Lecointe who is recovering from a knee problem.

Striker Tyler Harvey continues to find the back of the net for the club's reserve side and the 18-year-old is pushing for just his third start for the club against James Beattie's struggling Stanley.

Accrington boss James Beattie is still expected to be hamstrung by numerous injuries ahead of the long trip down to Plymouth.

Beattie is in his first managerial role at the Crown Ground but is yet to taste victory in Sky Bet League Two, which means Stanley currently occupy the lowest possible rung on the Football League ladder.

Their cause has not been helped by numerous injuries and while goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin (knee) is closing in on a return, Michael Liddle (ankle) went to see a specialist last week and fellow defender Laurence Wilson and striker Danny Webber (both groin) could also be missing once more.

Beattie made four changes last week and the acquisition of ex-Cardiff full-back Lee Naylor coupled with Nicky Hunt's return from a knee injury has given his youthful Stanley squad some much-needed experience.
