Charlie Taylor: Facing a late test

Charlie Taylor: Facing a late test

Team news for Tuesday's clash between Fleetwood Town and Plymouth Argyle at Highbury Stadium.

Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander must contend with another likely personnel shortage when they entertain Plymouth at Highbury.

The Cod Army have been decimated by injury in the past week and will hope full-backs Charlie Taylor and Conor McLaughlin can overcome the illness which kept them out of the starting line-up against Mansfield.

Top scorer David Ball is definitely out with an ankle injury which is worse than first feared, while Jamille Matt is struggling with the same problem with the Cod Army waiting to see how serious that could be for the striker, who missed a huge chunk of the season with a similar issue. Midfielder Jeff Hughes, meanwhile, is out with a broken leg.

Ankle injuries are a problem for Alexander's squad but midfielder Steven Schumacher has an outside shot of returning, while Stephen Jordan put aside his recent groin problems to complete 90 minutes at the weekend.

Plymouth will assess the fitness of Jason Banton and Dominic Blizzard ahead of their long trip to Fleetwood.

Blizzard missed Saturday's 2-1 win at Dagenham with a niggle picked up on Thursday in training and boss John Sheridan decided not to risk him, while former Crystal Palace winger Banton suffered a groin injury in that victory.

Defender Neal Trotman is available again having served a one-match suspension and Sheridan will have to decide whether to recall the former Chesterfield man or stick with Paul Wotton, who came in for his first start since October.

Tope Obadeyi, who rejoined for a second loan spell from Bury last week, was an unused substitute at the weekend but he will hope to get some game time against the Cod Army.
