And the honour of beating Argyle goes to...


Argyle have drawn Gillingham away in the 1st round of the League cup to be played in the second week of the season. Last year the Pilgrims were beaten by (now non-league) Luton Town, which is no surprise really as Argyle traditionally don't do well in the Cup matches (except for the spell under Holloway when they progressed to round 3 drawing West Ham).

This is Argyle's history in the League Cup when they've got beyond the first round. It doesn't make happy reading:
