Recent respective form guides

Plymouth Argyle's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Pilgrims have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Southampton's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Saints have hit 7 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Plymouth Arg. see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola Championship, showing a record of 30 points from their 24 games played so far, Southampton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 24 matches.
