League leaders Plymouth will be looking to extend their outstanding winning form at Home Park when they take on Port Vale in League one.

Currently 17 points ahead of their opponents, who sit down in 10th spot, the Argyle have been in excellent form, both at home and on their travels, having lost just one of their last 20 matches.

Plymouth vs Port Vale Betting Tips - Plymouth to win/BTTS

While strong on their travels, Plymouth´s home return this season has been exceptional, having won all nine league matches at Home Park. Plymouth scored at least two goals in seven of those wins while they have also kept five clean sheets during that sensational run.

Now back at Home Park, Steven Schumacher´s side can record a 10th successive home league victory against a Port Vale side that lost 4:0 in their last away match against Oxford.

Port Vale are enjoying a decent run of form, having lost only two of their last eight, however, this fixture represents a serious step up, with the hosts in such magnificent form at this venue.

Recent meetings between these sides have been dominated by the visitors, however, with Port Vale winning 6 of the last 7. However, they have not met in over three years, so it might be unwise to read too much into the h2h record.

Ultimately, it´s hard to get away from a home win here, although goals should also be expected, with the home side seeing BTTS in each of their last seven league matches. Port Vale have seen a similar outcome in 3 of their last 5 league matches.

With that being said, it´s pretty much a straight choice between the goals pick and the home win, and both selections look to have every chance in what should prove an entertaining contest.

Plymouth Team News

Head Coach Schumacher is likely to keep faith with much of the same starting XI that claimed a 3:2 win against Charlton last weekend.

All three of Schumacher´s forwards would get on the scoresheet that day, suggesting top scorer Ryan Hardie may again have to settle for a place on the bench.
