Plymouth Preview – Can Pilgrims stop the rot?

A three-match losing streak has really put a dent in the momentum of Plymouth’s League One season.

Just to put that into context, they have only lost four times in this campaign.

The other defeat happened on the opening weekend of the season, so they had been on a huge undefeated streak of league form before this season.

In each of those three current losses (two against current top-three sides), Plymouth conceded at least two goals.

That leaves the Pilgrims without a clean sheet in any of their last six games.

This is a serious wobble now that they have to dig themselves out of.
