*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The bookmakers haven't been able to price either side as the favourites for this clash which makes the Plymouth vs Hull odds fairly intriguing. Despite being ahead of the away team by 14 places and 22 points in the league table, Hull have still been priced at over evens for this one which represents great value considering it's win or bust for them.

They also need West Brom to lose if they are to leapfrog them into the playoffs but taking care of their own business will be the first port of call. They're unbeaten in six and have won two of their last three on the road.

Plymouth, meanwhile, have hit a wall over the past two weeks after steering clear of the relegation zone since the sacking of Ian Foster. The Pilgrims are now just a point above Birmingham in the battle to beat the drop and will be hoping their good home form (four points from their last two home games) sees them through.

Plymouth preview: Can they beat the drop?

Temporary managers, Kevin Nancekivell and Neil Dewsnip, have some serious dilemmas ahead of this one. Thankfully for them, they are only missing Mikel Miller due to injury and have all key players available. Morgan Whittaker has been the hero all season in front of goal and a couple more from him on Saturday should be enough.

Predicted lineup: Cooper (GK), Phillips, Scarr, Gibson, Mumba, Randell, Edwards, Galloway, Whittaker, Bundu, Hardie

Hull preview: Can they enter the playoff positions at the death?

Hull have been here or thereabouts all season and nobody wants to finish in 7th place in the Championship. However, unless they win and West Brom lose then that's what faces them. Manager, Liam Rosenior, will likely go in unchanged after a spirited 3-3 draw with Ipswich last time out.

Predicted lineup: Allsop (GK), Slater, Jones, Greaves, Jacob, Seri, Morton, Omur, Carvalho, Philogene, Tufan

Player to watch: Morgan Whittaker

Without Morgan Whittaker's goals this season, Plymouth would already be relegated. However, the 23-year-old has managed to net 19 league goals this term which has left Plymouth in the position they are currently in.

In need of a return to form

Despite Whittaker's impressive showing this season, the forward has failed to score in any of his last six appearances. The Pilgrims would likely accept his transfer away from the club this summer if he can end that drought on Saturday.
