Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock, who went public yesterday that he is suffering from a mild form of Parkinson's disease, says that with the Devon team playing back to back friendlies on Tuesday and Wednesday versus Yeovil Town and Truro City he expects to put a strong team out at Huish Park and a more fringe one out the following evening at Treyew Road.
Sturrock is still seeking players, having recently missed out on several targets including Crystal Palace midfielder Carl Fletcher, but feels he needs to be firming up his starting eleven at this stage of pre-season, so trialists are not expected to feature tonight :
To be fair, we have no time now to be experimenting. If we are going to bring players in, they have got to be ones who are going to fit right into our squad.
He admitted that the squad was carrying a number of niggles from the training pitch which might influence his team selection against the Glovers :
We picked up a couple of wee niggling knocks yesterday because it is pretty hard out there. Touch wood, they will be okay.
A face familiar at Huish Park, that of Rory Fallon, is expected to take to the pitch as he returns from a groin strain injury picked up on Argyle's Austrian tour.
