Anthony Charles: Injury concern for Argyle
Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Plymouth Argyle and Bradford City at Home Park.
Plymouth defender Anthony Charles is an injury worry for John Sheridan.
The centre-back, an ever-present since arriving in January, had to be substituted in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Gillingham with a twinge in his groin.
And Charles, who celebrated his 32nd birthday on Monday, will be assessed by the club's medical staff ahead of the first of two back-to-back home games for the side rock-bottom of the Football League.
Striker Gozie Ugwu shrugged off an abdominal muscle injury to feature as a second-half substitute and the Reading loanee is set to be involved again.
Goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin (hamstring), right-back Durrell Berry (knee) and midfielder Jamie Lowry (ankle) have all returned to training but this game may come too soon for the trio.
Meanwhile captain Conor Hourihane was booked for the ninth time this season at Gillingham and a yellow against Bradford would see his miss the Pilgrims' matches against play-off hopefuls Fleetwood and Southend.
Bradford striker Alan Connell is one of several players pushing for recalls in midweek.
Connell has not started a league game for the Bantams since the home defeat to Rochdale in December but stepped off the substitutes' bench against Aldershot on Saturday to rescue a point by converting a stoppage-time penalty.
Manager Phil Parkinson has no new injury or suspension problems but could be ready to utilise his squad again with another long trip to face Exeter scheduled on Saturday.
Striker Nahki Wells recovered from a dead-leg to start alongside James Hanson at the weekend, while veteran Andy Gray provides Parkinson with another option up front.
Goalkeeper Matt Duke, who has not appeared since the Capital One Cup final defeat to Swansea, is hoping to win back his place from Jon McLaughlin and winger Garry Thompson shook off a rib injury and appeared as a second-half substitute against Aldershot.
Midfielder Nathan Doyle, defender Andrew Davies and winger Kyel Reid are also hoping to return to action.
