Match Preview: Plymouth Argyle (A)

15 March 2024

Preston North End will see in the final international break of the season with a first trip to Plymouth Argyle since 2010.

Match Details

Date: Saturday 16th March, 3pm kick-off
Venue: Home Park
Competition: Sky Bet Championship
Kit: Home kit

Supporter Information

Tickets are now off sale, with more than 1,050 PNE fans set to head to Home Park on Saturday.

Fans collecting tickets can do so from the Kawasaki Barn Park turnstiles (B20 to 25) after the club coaches have arrived, and duplicate tickets can also be collected here from 1.30pm. There will be no tickets available to buy on the day.

Home Park is a cashless stadium and supporters are encouraged to use contactless payment methods. Supporters can find out more information about matchday by taking a look through Plymouth Argyle’s guide.

Who’s Available?


After limping off in North End’s defeat to Stoke City, midfielder Ben Whiteman will be missing for at least the next few weeks.

PNE will be boosted, though, by the return of right wing-back Brad Potts, who hasn’t featured since Cardiff City away on 10th February.

Striker Ched Evans is the only other absentee, although the striker is now back on the grass, having recently had a clear out in his knee.

Opposition Focus


With nine games left of their season, Plymouth Argyle will be looking to pick up valuable points to move themselves into a more comfortable position.

As things stand, they sit in the middle of a relegation battle and just three points outside of the drop zone, following their promotion from League One last term.

Morgan Whittaker’s 18 goals so far this season have helped them in their quest to stay up, however a total of 61 goals conceded at the other end has limited their progress.

A Recent Clash

North End went to the top of the Sky Bet Championship in September thanks to goals from Duane Holmes and Liam Millar in a 2-1 win.
