What happened in your last match?

SC: We drew 1-1 at Aldershot Town, which turned out to be a good point.

PR: The last game I attended was a 1-1 draw on Boxing Day against Torquay United. They scored a 90th-minute equaliser through Tyler Harvey. In our last league match we got an important 2-1 win against Barnet.

Why is this game important?

SC: It's simple; if we win we stay top of the league. Also, it's important we start winning at home again.

PR: We must continue to win as we are fighting to stay in The Football League.

How do you see this game going?

SC: I'm expecting a tough game as both clubs are fighting at different ends of the table, but I think we will edge it.

PR: It's going to be a very tough game against league leaders.

Who should we keep our eye on?

SC: Loan signing Antonio German - he changed the game at Aldershot last Saturday, along with Bradley Dack.

PR: Gillingham strikers Danny Kedwell and Deon Burton will probably cause us problems, and Adam Barrett is an ex-Argyle player who always plays well against us.

Any memories of previous encounters?

SC: Last season we beat Plymouth 3-0 at Priestfield, and Gills player, and fan, Danny Kedwell scored his first goals for the club.

PR: I remember the 2-2 draw earlier this season at Home Park - we should have won it.

Score prediction?

SC: I think we'll win 2-1.

PR: 1-0 win for Argyle.
