ARGYLE MUST WIN BY THREE GOALS TO PROGRESS IN TROPHY
CHRIS ERRINGTON

PLYMOUTH Argyle's involvement in 2021/22 Papa John's Trophy will come to an end unless they beat Arsenal Under-21s by at least three goals at Home Park tonight.

The Pilgrims lost the first two of their three games in Southern Group F-2-0 away to Newport County and 3-1 at home to Swindon Town.

Unless they defeat Arsenal, and group leaders Swindon also beat Newport at the County Ground on Tuesday, November 9, Argyle will fail to qualify for the knockout stage.

They have not progressed past the group stage since the current format of the Papa John's Trophy, which includes 16 invited under-21 sides, was introduced from the 2016/17 season.
