Plymouth will aim to frustrate Josh Morris on Saturday

Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams believes if his side are able to keep Josh Morris quiet this weekend, that will be key to their success.

Morris answered the critics on Saturday, when his second half goal – from outside the box once more – secured a huge first three points of the new season.

United travel to Home Park to face a side who currently sit one place below ourselves in tenth, after they started the season with one loss, one win and one draw.

“They play with two wingers, so to speak,” Adams said.

“We’ll have to deal with them. In the midfield as well, centrally, they are very good.

“We’ll look to try and stop the supply to (Josh Morris). That’s one of the areas you always have to be aware of, if somebody has a good goal-scoring record.

“But we’ve seen it with a number of players already this season. That’s why it’s never important to have a 20-goal a season striker and have nobody else scoring them.”

Adams took a sly dig Alexander’s men, suggesting that United are a one-man team, and that he is happy that his side have goals coming from all over the pitch.

“It’s important to spread the goals throughout the team because if you man-mark one player out of the team where do the rest of your goals come from?

“We’ve got a team with players who can score goals from a variety of positions so other teams will find it very difficult to man-mark four or five out of the game.”

Adams also confirmed that former-Iron midfielder, Jamie Ness, could be involved in the game. Ness had arrived at Home Park an injured player, but is close to full fitness once more.
