Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe will warn his players to take nothing for granted when they play bottom-of-the-table Northampton on Tuesday.

The Pilgrims, who were promoted alongside the Cobblers last season, are 10th in Sky Bet League One and still in with a shout of the play-offs after claiming a thrilling, last-gasp 4-3 victory over second-placed Lincoln at the weekend.

Lowe's side now face a team at the other end of the table but he is expecting a difficult game despite Town's 11-game winless run.

“We know it’s going to be tough," the former Bury manager told Plymouth Live. "They (Northampton) are not where they want to be, certainly.

“When you are playing teams that are down the bottom you have to still make sure you are spot on with the game plan.

“The attitude needs to be spot on. We can’t just roll up at Northampton and expect to win, not a chance. I will make sure our lads don’t think that, and I certainly won’t think that.

“We will respect them for what they are and how they go about their business. Yes, they are not having a good time at the moment but that’s irrelevant in this league, as you have seen.

“Anyone can beat anyone. We have put the game plan together and hopefully all goes well.”

On-loan Crystal Palace defender Sam Woods could make his first start for Plymouth tonight after an injury to Jerome Opoku.
