After a difficult start to the season, Bolton Wanderers kept their playoff hopes alive with an eye-catching run in the new year, winning six of seven league matches and drawing the other to climb into the top-six race.
While their form has taken a slight dip since, with Ian Evatt‘s men falling to defeats to Burton Albion and MK Dons in February, they did bounce back from the latter with a 3-0 thrashing of Gillingham last weekend, thanks to goals from Aaron Morley, Declan John and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson.
The Trotters then headed into Tuesday’s home meeting with strugglers Morecambe looking to make it two straight wins, but they looked set to fall to a 1-0 defeat, only for Bodvarsson to snatch a point with a 94th-minute equaliser.
Nonetheless, that underwhelming result leaves Evatt’s side seven points behind the playoff places – possibly a gap too wide to bridge in their last nine league matches.
The Lancashire outfit do have a chance to score a victory over the sixth-placed side this weekend, though, and they will see three points as imperative if they are to cling on in the battle until the end of the campaign.
Ian Evatt has seemingly found a relatively established starting XI, and Bolton are again unlikely to make too many changes with Will Aimson, Ricardo Santos and George Johnston lining up across the back line and Marlon Fossey and Declan John playing in wing-back roles.
One possible alteration could be the return of Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, with the Iceland international having scored off the bench last time out, making it consecutive goals for the Trotters after a slow start to life in Lancashire following a move from Millwall.
There is plenty of competition for places in attack, though, with Oladapo Afolayan, Dion Charles and Amadou Bakayoko also vying for starts.
Plymouth set up in a similar system to their hosts, and Schumacher has also relied upon an established core, fielding Macauley Gillesphey, James Bolton and James Wilson at the back.
Ryan Hardie will again lead the line after netting in a second straight match last time out, with Luke Jephcott, Niall Ennis and Jordon Garrick battling to join the Scotsman.

Panutche Camara will hope to earn his place back in the midfield, although Ryan Broom, Jordan Houghton and Danny Mayor have impressed in the centre recently.
