West Bromwich Albion make the 402-mile round trip to Plymouth Argyle in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday night (ko 7.45pm).

Both teams will be looking for an instant reply to 2-0 home defeats in the second tier over the weekend, with the Baggies slipping to a setback against Southampton and Argyle losing to Leeds United.

The reverse fixture ended goalless in October at The Hawthorns.

Tuesday's encounter will be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs at Home Park since February 6 2010 - over 14 years ago.

The opponents

The 2022/23 Sky Bet League One champions Plymouth Argyle have a very clear target this season - to retain their Sky Bet Championship status.

The Pilgrims are competing in the second tier of English football once again having spent the last 13 years in the lower leagues of the EFL. 

They head into Tuesday's tussle with Carlos Corberán's men sat 16th in the standings, but only five points clear of the danger zone with 14 matches still be to be contested. 

Their Home Park form could play a crucial role in keeping them in the division. Plymouth would be 10th if the Championship was based on home results alone, with the Devon club claiming eight victories and suffering just four defeats from their 16 games in front of their own supporters. 

They score plenty of goals too. Only third-placed Southampton have scored more goals on home soil than Plymouth's 38.

Ian Foster is their head coach. He was appointed in early January following the departure of Steven Schumacher to Stoke. The 47-year-old was Steven Gerrard's assistant at Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq and also worked for the Football Association with a number of different age groups. 

He's won two, drawn three and lost three of his first eight encounters in charge.

One to remember

Albion claimed a 1-0 win at Home Park the last time they visited in a competitive game.
