Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fleetwood Town and Plymouth Argyle go head to head at Highbury Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Fishermen aim to build on back-to-back wins over Sunderland and Bristol Rovers, and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Plymouth. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be midfielder Callum Camps, who scored a brace in the 4-1 win over Bristol Rovers.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Portsmouth in their last league match. Plymouth Argyle are level on points with Fleetwood Town, but given the Fishermen’s current form, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Highbury Stadium Fleetwood defeated Plymouth 2-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
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.
