Plymouth Argyle will open their 2021-22 League One campaign with a trip to Rotherham United.
The match is scheduled to be played on 7th August 2021, and will be the first meeting between the two sides since a dramatic 2-1 win for the Greens at the end of the 2017-18 campaign. Overall, Argyle have a fairly mixed record against the Millers, with 28 wins, 25 defeats and 15 draws.
Other highlights of the fixture list include a trip to newly-promoted Cheltenham Town on Boxing Day, before consecutive home fixtures against Portsmouth and AFC Wimbledon take us into the New Year. Meanwhile, Argyle will end the season at Home Park for the first time in three years, with a fixture against Milton Keynes on 30th April 2022.
Argyle’s fixture list is yet to be 100% confirmed due to news from the EFL this morning concerning a potential points deduction for Derby County. The Rams have been fined £100,000 relating to “ongoing disciplinary proceedings,” but the EFL are still pushing for further punishment. If a points deduction is applied to last season, Derby will be relegated in place of Wycombe Wanderers.
As such, the EFL have published an interchangeable fixture list for both Derby and Wycombe, which can be reversed should Derby be placed into League One. Argyle are currently due to play Wycombe at home in November and away in April.
