Argyle Aim For JPT Win

Plymouth Argyle play their first ever match in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy competition tonight when they travel to the Abbey Business Stadium to play Cheltenham Town.

Argyle received a bye in the First Round of the competition and will be looking to win 7,000 in prize money tonight if they beat the League Two side.

Johnstone's Paint started their sponsorship of the Football League Trophy in 2007; previous sponsors included Freight Rover, Sherpa Van, Leyland DAF, Autoglass and LDV Vans.

Last season 73,476 fans saw Southampton beat Carlisle 4-1 at Wembley with both clubs receiving 350,000 each in gate receipts.

The prize money for this season is 5,000 (first round), 7,000 (second round), 10,000 (area quarter-final), 17,000 (area semi-final), 25,500 (area final), 40,000 (winners).

Clubs used to play their reserve or younger players in the JPT but a new rule has been introduced whereby a club must include in its starting line-up at least six of the 11 players who started the club's previous game or at least 6 of the 11 players who have made the most starts in league and domestic Cup competitions since the start of the season.

However, some clubs have ignored this rule and have been fined 1,500. Several clubs have recorded their lowest ever attendance for the Football League Trophy games.

Should Argyle's game against Cheltenham end in a draw after 90 minutes, there will be no extra-time. Instead, it will be settled by a penalty shoot-out.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
