All the latest team news today from both camps for this EFL fixture. Plus managers comments, and of course at 2pm we deliver the managers selections for todays game.
⚽️ First off Plymouth manager, Ian Foster on his journey so far: “I think we've had a really positive January window. We're really pleased with the business we've done.It’ll be nice for us all to just settle down and really assess what we've got and where we go. It's been a quite chaotic start to my Argyle journey, with all the comings and goings. The boys have reacted brilliantly and welcomed the new players into the club, and that's testament to the culture and environment that was already in place when I arrived. We want that to become stronger, get a real togetherness about the group. In terms of the playing style and the principles that I want us to play with, they've been brilliant, and the fact that we can see them implement it now on the grass, in matches when they're under pressure, is really pleasing. We've had a bright start. We've got loads and loads of work to do; we’re by no means the finished article and will never be the finished article. There's always work to be done, we've got to continue to do that. We've got to continue to make steps forward. We know it's not going to be a linear process. We know it's going to be quite turbulent, but that's the journey we're on - and we look forward to it and embrace it. The results that we've had so far have been quite positive. Long may that continue.”
Argyle have Jordan Houghton out but welcome Darko Gyabi and Adam Forshaw, as well as Adam Randell, these could all feature today. There’s no news on Lewis Gibson or Joe Edwards
⚽️ Foster on the Swans : “It's not been easy to really assess Swansea given the variance in games that they've had,” said Foster. “From the FA Cup game against Morecambe to Premier League opposition on the Bournemouth, they've had some really tough and challenging games of late where they've flitted between formations, which doesn't help when you're trying to watch them. We know the players. The manager (Luke Williams) has got excellent pedigree in terms of how he sets his teams up and plays. We know that it's a difficult place to go. Saturday will be a really challenging game, with both teams desperate to get all three points. They've had an incredibly tough run of fixtures: Birmingham away, Southampton at home, Bournemouth away, Leicester away.
