Football - Hayes set for debut

Plymouth are set to hand Paul Hayes a home debut in the televised clash with Portsmouth as they search for their first win in a month.

PA Sport Report

The last week has seen the Pilgrims lose to arch-rivals Exeter and then exit the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the hands of Swindon, with Hayes starting both clashes, and the Brentford loanee is set to line-up against Pompey.

Jake Cole was given the chance to impress in goal on Tuesday night at The County Ground but Luke McCormick is likely to be given the nod again.

Manager John Sheridan, whose side last won on September 7, experimented with a new central defensive partnership of Curtis Nelson and Neal Trotman and the pair will hope to keep their places with Paul Wotton and Guy Branston having sat out in midweek.
