Our prediction for this Championship match:
Plymouth will look to recover from a 2-0 loss to Millwall when they take on Swansea in the Championship round 11. The Pilgrims have been having their ups and downs of late and given Swansea’s fine form in the English second tier, home win should not be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Saturday’s clash, but both Bundu and Cundle are pushing for a start.
The South Wales outfit, on the other hand, have been demonstrating noticeable improvement lately, with the team extending their winning run to three games against Norwich City. As Plymouth have been struggling at the back in the first half of the season, we are positive that the in-form visitors are going to score two or more goals in the Home Park showdown. All Kristian Pedersen, Josh Ginnelly, Nathan Wood, Nathanael Ogbeta, Joe Allen, and Azeem Abdulai are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
