McQuilkin: Faces fitness test

Team news for Friday's League Two clash between Hereford and Plymouth Argyle at Edgar Street.

Hereford welcome back midfielder Sam Clucas for their must-win clash.

Clucas has made a speedy recovery from an ankle injury to return to the fold, missing only last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Rotherham having been forced off against Crewe the week previous.

Fellow midfielder James McQuilkin will again be assessed having sat out against the Millers with a knock, as will Benoit Dalibard although the game may come too early for the defender as he looks to make his long-awaited return from a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Simon Clist (ankle) is not yet ready despite also nearing his comeback, Rob Purdie (hamstring) and Joe Heath (groin) remain on the sidelines.

The Bulls prop up the League Two table, four points from safety, knowing victory against fourth-bottom Plymouth is vital if they are to have any real chance of survival.

Meanwhile, Argyle manager Carl Fletcher has no new injury or suspension worries to contend with.

Fletcher switched to an attack-minded line-up for the crucial 1-0 home success over Bradford last time out, with Alex MacDonald and Ashley Hemmings included on either flank to support strikers Juvhel Tsoumou and Nick Chadwick.

Onismor Bhasera and Conor Hourihane made way so Fletcher could name an aggressive XI, and both will be hoping for recalls at Edgar Street.

On-loan Bournemouth striker Steve Fletcher came off the bench to make his debut against the Bantams and he is pushing for a first start with the Pilgrims, who could go seven points clear of the relegation zone with a victory on Good Friday.
