FA CUP: Plymouth Argyle

Swindon take a break from their shaky League One campaign to travel to Devon for their F.A. Cup 1st Round tie with Plymouth Argyle.

Vital Quotes:

Talking to the BBC Peter Reid declared that he was hoping to progress as he believed that the 'magic' of the F.A. Cup still existed but insisted they still have to 'get past a very difficult Swindon side who will be chomping at the bit to get revenge for when we beat them in the league.'

While Danny Wilson gave Town supporters an insight of the mood in the Swindon camp by stating that his players 'have been absolutely buzzing in training the last day or two so they're very much up for the challenge that's in front of us'.

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

The Pilgrims will be without on-loan duo goalkeeper David Button and Conor Clifford.

Button of Tottenham Hotspur is out with a thigh injury and could be replaced by long-serving stopper Roman Larrieu.

Meanwhile Chelsea midfielder Conor Clifford is out as his parent club have refused permission for Plymouth to field him.

Defender Reda Johnson has an ankle injury while Carl Fletcher remains sidelined.
