Team news:

Stevenage are unlikely to make too many changes from the side that picked up a point at Wycombe although Chris Beardsley will miss out through suspension after picking up two yellows at Adams Park. Danny Johnson, Charlie Lee and Ben Kennedy are among the options open to GW.

Plymouth top scorer Reuben Reid missed Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to Bury with a foot injury and is therefore a doubt for Tuesday's game. He received an injection prior to the weekend game but wasn't risked, although is expected to travel to Hertfordshire. Former Boro loanee Ryan Brunt is in goalscoring form himself lately and will pose a threat if selected again in Reid's place.

Graham Westley, Tom Pett and Dean Wells look ahead to Tuesday's match after the Wycombe game

After a 2-0 loss to Bury ended Argyle’s excellent recent form, John Sheridan is eager for his team to recover quickly from a momentum-draining defeat.

John Sheridan is not sure whether top scorer Reuben Reid will be fit for Argyle’s away game against Stevenage on Tuesday night.

Recent form:

Plymouth's 2-0 home defeat to Bury spoiled an otherwise perfect February which had seen four consecutive wins, including three clean sheets and put their playoff push back on track. This follows a poor run of just two wins in 12 games stretching back to late November which threatened to derail Argyle's season. Recent home wins have come against Cambridge (2-1) and Accrington (1-0) with away wins at Wycombe (2-0) and Devon rivals Exeter (3-1)

Last time we met:

Plymouth snatched the most unlikeliest of points with a last gasp penalty at Home Park in August to deny Stevenage what would have been an excellent win on their travels. A first Boro goal for Connor Calcutt looked to have the points heading back to Hertfordshire, but in time added on after the allotted six minutes of injury time, the Pilgrims equalised from the spot after a Dembele handball.

Head to head:

That's simple. One game, two goals and 98 minutes of football. Highlights of the only ever previous meeting between the two sides can be watched above.
