Argyle boss Adams relishing visit of League One side Gillingham to Home Park

Home Park

PLYMOUTH Argyle manager Derek Adams is relishing his first competitive home match in charge this evening against League One side Gillingham in the Capital One Cup (7.45pm).

Adams, who took over in the Home Park hot-seat from John Sheridan this summer, believes Justin Edinburgh’s Gillingham team will provide a good test for his League Two promotion-chasing outfit in the first round cup clash.

Argyle made a great start to the season with a 2-0 away victory at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

However, Gillingham will also be on a high after they shocked Sheffield United 4-0 in their opening game.

“I am looking forward to it,” said Adams. “You look forward to every game, especially home matches.

“We’ve got a League One club coming to Home Park and it will be a very good occasion. It’s a competition we want to do well in.”

He added: “They (Gillingham) have obviously come off a very good result on Saturday against Sheffield United, and from my point of view it’s good to have League One opposition come to us. It will be a good test.”

Argyle, who have no new injury worries, do have a poor record in the League Cup. They have won just one of their last seven first round ties, while they have not beaten Gillingham in their last six meetings.
