Recent respective form guides

Plymouth Argyle's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Pilgrims have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Sheff. Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the The Blades, and 6 goals against.

Plymouth Arg. are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola Championship having mustered a points tally of 35 from their 33 matches played. Sheff. Utd.'s total of 51 points from their 32 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.
