Wotton is part of strong cast at Saltash

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 professionals 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 0-0 npower League Two home draw with Accrington Stanley last Saturday.

The other professionals in new Argyle manager John Sheridan's attractive-looking squad are Cornish goalkeeper Ollie Chenoweth, defender Jamie Richards plus strikers Isaac Vassell and England Under-18 international Matt Lecointe.

The clash with the Ashes is likely to be one of few opportunities Sheridan will have of assessing the fitness and form of squad players he inherited when he replaced former Argyle 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 Carlsberg South West Peninsula League Premier side is likely to be a competitive affair. Former Oldham Athletic 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.

Plymouth Argyle (from): Chenoweth, Walton; Watson, Wotton, Richards, Williams, Purrington, Vassell, Lowry, Sims, Allen, Asumadu-Sakyi, Harvey, Gurrieri, Lecointe, Hutchinson, Wheatley, Summers.

Bideford's home game against Bedworth United in the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division last night was postponed. Heavy rain had left the Sports Ground pitch waterlogged.

Tiverton Town's Division One South and West home game was also called off, as was Willand Rovers' trip to Street in the Toolstation Western League top flight.

The Cornwall Senior Cup tie between Liskeard Athletic and St Blazey at Lux Park was washed out last night and will now take place at Blaise Park on Wednesday, February 6. Next Tuesday's Carlsberg South West Peninsula League game between St Austell and Liskeard is thus postponed.

Another victim of the wet weather, last night's Devon St Luke's Challenge Cup tie between Plymouth Parkway and Tavistock, will now be staged at Bolitho Park on Tuesday, February 5.
