Paul Wotton heads strong Plymouth Argyle squad
PAUL WOTTON heads a strong party of professionals in the Plymouth Argyle squad for the friendly with Saltash United at Kimberley Stadium tonight (7.30pm).
The Pilgrims make the short hop across the River Tamar for the work-out with a clean split of pros and youngsters in their 18-strong playing contingent.
Wotton is joined in the visitors' squad by fellow midfielders Jamie Lowry and Andres Gurrieri, and defender Robbie Williams, all of whom were unused substitutes in Argyle's League Two home draw with Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
The other professionals in new Argyle manager John Sheridan's attractive-looking squad are Cornish goalkeeper Ollie Chenoweth, defender Jamie Richards and strikers Isaac Vassell and young England under-18 international Matt Lecointe.
The clash with the Ashes is likely to be one of the few opportunities Sheridan will have of assessing the fitness and form of players he inherited since he replaced former boss Carl Fletcher at the turn of this year.
Sheridan's first match in charge was the 2-1 home League Two victory over Morecambe on January 12 before last Saturday's stalemate with Stanley at Home Park.
Tonight's game against the South West Peninsula League Premier side is likely to be a competitive affair.
Former Oldham and Chesterfield boss Sheridan is still assessing his playing resources in what is almost certain to be another nail-biting battle against relegation for the Pilgrims.
The cost of entry for tonight's game is £4 adults and £2 concessions.
