Seip is Argyle's secret weapon

Marcel Seip was confined to bench warming duties during his spell at Charlton. He is seen as having played a key role in Argyle's shock 3-1 victory at Franchise FC on Tuesday and is now raring to go against the Addicks tomorrow: Seip

Cheerful Plymouth boss Peter Reid admits that Charlton are a good side and that it will be a tough match tomorrow with the crowd behind new manager Chris Powell. His game plan is to get the ball and hang on to it, denying Charlton possession. In other words, don't be surprised if there are ten men behind the ball. We need an early goal to prevent a 0-0.

Argyle are still in a serious financial crisis and their fire sale of players is continuing (see the football economy page).

It's going to be a big day for the Addickted tomorrow. My wife, who let her season ticket lapse, has bought a ticket. Do remember, however, that it's still the same bunch of relatively mediocre players, minus Lee Martin, who for all his shortcomings at least brought some pace.

I don't set much store by form tables (final positions are not decided by the last six matches) but it is worth noting that we were third from bottom at the weekend.
