Kevin O’Connor misses Plymouth contest

Kevin O’Connor will be missing for Fleetwood when they entertain Plymouth at Highbury.

The on-loan Preston defender picked up an ankle problem this week and has been ruled out.

Boss John Sheridan, who will take charge of the Cod Army for just the second time, otherwise has a full complement of players to choose from.

Fleetwood are winless in League One since January 13 but did pick up their first point in seven in Sheridan’s first contest.

Plymouth’s preparations have been hit by a sickness bug.

Manager Derek Adams was reluctant to reveal which of his squad were suffering with illness, but it may force his hand in terms of selecting a team that has won six successive games.

The Pilgrims made just one change to their starting line-up last time around as Oscar Threlkeld returned from illness and Yann Songo’o dropped out of the XI.

Adams also revealed to The Plymouth Herald that defender Ryan Edwards had received his last dose of chemotherapy this week after being diagnosed with testicular cancer in January.
