Can Salford City’s home form be enough to overcome Plymouth Argyle

The Football Manc Cave is giving you a glimpse into what should be an interesting and exciting game this week, Salford City vs Plymouth.

This league is a new challenge for both teams with Salford only being promoted at the end of last season. Alongside that Plymouth being relegated into this league and then having to adapt to a new manager, Ryan Lowe, and a lot of players from Bury who followed in the manager’s footsteps. This should make it an exciting game with a lot of action. Straight off the bat, Plymouth would be favourites, although anything can happen.

Salford’s Form

Salford 2-0 Stevenage

Crawley 2-0 Salford

Salford 1-1 Port Vale

Plymouth Argyle’s Form:

Crewe 0-3 Plymouth

Plymouth 1-0 Colchester

Newport County 1-0 Plymouth

Salford’s home form is obviously a lot better than their away form so far however, that is to be expected from most clubs. Hopefully, their home crowd can get behind them and they can deliver.

Squad News:

Chris Neal has been playing brilliantly for Salford and he’ll have guaranteed his place in the squad. Carl Piergianni received the man of the match for his efforts last weekend. Adam Rooney will no doubt be leading his team out. Richie Towell is the one to look out for and his form will guarantee him a place in the squad too. Mani Dieseruvwe is another player who’s already scored two goals this season and will be looking to add to that tally. Jake Beesley got his first EFL goal last weekend and made the equaliser so he’s another who Graham Alexander will probably be considering giving another chance.

Prediction:

Unfortunately, I do think Salford will lose as Plymouth are looking the stronger side. I do think that with the home crowd, Salford will be able to find the back of the net at least once though.
