FA Cup - Banton missing for Argyle

Plymouth will be without new recruit Jason Banton when they host League One Port Vale in their FA Cup third-round replay.

Argyle paid a transfer fee for the first time in four years to sign the winger from Crystal Palace last week but Banton is cup-tied having featured in the competition for MK Dons during a loan spell and he is unavailable to face Micky Adams' men.

Sheridan could turn to winger Ryan Thomas or Rommy Boco to fill the void left by Banton but Tyler Harvey is also unavailable having been on loan at Salisbury when the original fixture took place.

John Sheridan has also selected former Barnet goalkeeper Jake Cole in the Pilgrims' cup ties this season so he is set to return to the starting line-up at Home Park in place of Luke McCormick.
