Football - Skipper returns for Pilgrims

Plymouth will be boosted by the return of captain Conor Hourihane when they travel to face Oxford.

Hourihane served his one-match suspension against Bury on Saturday and now looks set to return to the heart of the Argyle midfield against the high-flying U's.

Lewis Alessandra should continue on the left of the Pilgrims' midfield after an impressive display in the 2-1 victory over the Shakers, meaning Sheffield Wednesday loanee Caolan Lavery is set to start upfront alongside top scorer Reuben Reid once more.

The Pilgrims face Oxford having failed to win their last four away games in all competitions.
