Plymouth Argyle Vs Brentford, Sat 20 Nov 2010

Published Add your comment

Plymouth manager Peter Reid is boosted by having Stephane Zubar at his disposal for the visit of Brentford.

The defender impressed in a trial at Home Park at the start of the season and had to wait for a dispute with his old club, Vaslui in Romania, to be resolved before he could make his debut.

Zubar has been training with the club ever since and, after receiving international clearance, is in contention to start.

Kari Arnason has completed his four-match suspension and returns to the Argyle squad, while Luke Summerfield is ruled out with a knee injury.

Carl Fletcher could return from injury and goalkeeper David Button could also come back from a thigh problem.

On-loan midfielder Conor Clifford is due to make his last appearance before returning to parent club Chelsea, but Reid is trying to thrash out a deal to keep the youngster.

Pim Balkestein and Karleigh Osborne return to the Brentford squad for the trip.

The Bees' first-choice central-defensive partnership missed Tuesday night's 1-0 FA Cup defeat by Aldershot through suspension.

With David McCracken currently sidelined by a calf injury, Stephen Wright deputised as a makeshift centre-half alongside Leon Legge.

Wright will revert to right-back and Legge will drop to the bench if boss Andy Scott recalls both Balkestein and Osborne.

Elsewhere, striker Gary Alexander should return having missed out in midweek after his girlfriend went into labour, while on-loan goalkeeper Ben Hamer was ineligible and will be back to challenge Richard Lee for the gloves.

Striker Carl Cort remains a long-term absentee with a torn Achilles.
