The Spurs loanee is sidelined for at least three matches after damaging his hamstring at Rochdale.

Stuart O’Keefe would appear the replacement as a defensive midfielder, following his recent return from injury.

Connor Ronan is another option for the Blues, while Dion Donohue could be pushed up from left-back into the engine room.

Meanwhile, keeper Remi Matthews’ availability is the Pilgrims’ main selection issue ahead of the Blues’ visit.

The Norwich loanee recently became a father and there is some doubt if he will feature at Home Park.

Kyle Letheren is in line to deputise in his absence.

Otherwise, Derek Adams will pick from the same squad who defeated Peterborough last weekend.
