CITY will once again have a loan keeper barring their way in Plymouth’s goal tomorrow.

But it will not be the same one who broke their hearts in the league encounter three weeks ago.

Remi Matthews, who saved Tony McMahon’s second-half penalty in Argyle’s 1-0 win, is back with parent club Norwich after damaging his ankle last weekend.

It means Derek Adams is now on his SIXTH different keeper after a remarkable run of bad luck with injuries.

Matthews was signed on an emergency loan deal because of the growing crisis.

But he joined the lengthy casualty list after suffering a problem in the 1-0 defeat at Portsmouth, leaving Adams once again at the mercy of the EFL to plug the gap.

Hull teenager Will Mannion was hastily recruited on a week-to-week basis and rushed straight into the team beaten by Exeter in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old will again be between the sticks at Valley Parade – with scholar Max Childs the novice back-up on the bench.

Luke McCormick, Kyle Letheren, Robbert te Loeke and Michael Cooper are all sidelined as Plymouth’s keeping resources are stretched to the limit and beyond.

Club captain McCormick has not featured since September 23 because of an ankle injury. His deputy Letheren is out until after Christmas with a thigh issue.

Youth team keeper Cooper, who played 45 minutes for the senior side, has a dislocated finger and Dutchman te Loeke an injured back.

Mannion, who started his career at Wimbledon, has played for England under-19s and is in the under-20s squad. He made his Hull debut at the start against Doncaster in the Carabao Cup in August.

Plymouth have had a bit of brighter news with forward Ryan Taylor pushing for a place in the travelling squad after three months out. He played 70 minutes in midweek and scored.

Adams said: “He does take the ball in well and score goals. He’s still got a bit to do to get up to speed.”
