That Plymouth are 'desperately seeking a striker' may come as a message of hope for Leicester City in tomorrow's game-in-hand Championship League clash at Home Park.
Vitalfootball's Plymouth editor says Plymouth have only two senior strikers, Mickey Evans and Nick Chadwick, in the squad now, having recently sold Scott Taylor to MK Dons for £100,000.
Manager Tony Pulis is busily seeking reinforcements, with Cheltenham's Kayode Odejayi mentioned in the Sunday press, but any signing will be too late for the Leicester match.
Plymouth have not won at home since the middle of December when they beat Crystal Palace 2-0, but they gained a creditable 2-1 win at Crewe on Saturday with two goals by skippe Paul Wootton.
In their last six games they've won two, drawn two and lost two but scored only six goals while conceding seven.
Vitalfootball's Plymouth man says right-sided midfielder David Norris has been their star man recently with his all-action, high energy displays.
Plymouth also have a talented playmaker in Akos Buzsaky returning from injury but the Hungarian, who is said to have attracted Premier club interest may not quite make the Leicester match.
In central defence Matt Doumbe and Elliott Ward have formed a good understanding, Ward having recently extended his loan from West Ham for another month which has been a big boost to Plymouth's small squad.
The two teams have only met on 33 occasions, including 30 in the League and of the Home Park matches Leicester have won two and drawn five with Plymouth winning eight. The most recent clash was a 0-0 draw at Plymouth in May 2005.
Leicester have still only won once away from home all season and have suffered six successive defeats on their travels scoring just five goals and conceding 13.
Tomorrow's match was originally scheduled for November 1 but that game was abandoned at half-time with Plymouth leading 1-0.
One familiar face who may well be in the Plymouth team is French midfielder Lilian Nalis, the former City man who has recently joined the Pilgrims from Sheffield United on a six month contract.
