Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Macclesfield Town will be looking to put an end to their six-game winless run in the League Two when they take on Plymouth Argyle at their Moss Rose Ground. The Silkmen are tough to beat at home, with the team managing to avoid defeat in each of their previous seven home fixtures in the League Two. Macclesfield Town are stuck in the middle of the standings ahead of Matchday 22, meaning that the Pilgrims want this win more than the hosts.
Plymouth Argyle, on the other hand, aim to climb to the play-offs berth in the League Two standings, and they must be high on confidence following a routine 3-0 win over Morecambe. As previously mentioned, Saturday’s match is of big importance for Plymouth Argyle, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.
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.
