PLYMOUTH Albion will be looking to build on their late win over London Scottish last weekend when they make the long trip to Headingley on Sunday to take on Leeds.

Albion finished strongly against Scottish with replacement Steve Johns grabbing victory for his side with the last move of the game.

Johns is rewarded for his efforts with his first Championship start of the season on Sunday.

Canadian World Cup star Aaron Carpenter has failed to recover from a knee injury in time to take his place in Albion's starting line-up team, but Plymouth hope he might be fit enough to take a place on the bench.

Carpenter's number eight shirt goes to 19-year-old former Leeds Academy player James Tyas, who will be hoping to impress on his return to Headingley.

Albion, who will be looking for their first away win of the season after narrow defeats at Doncaster, Bristol and London Welsh, are able to welcome back forwards Herbie Stupple and Addison Lockley to their squad following injuries.

Plymouth and Leeds currently sit level of points with both teams having won three matches this season.

Albion: 15 James Love, 14 Steve Johns, 13 Bevon Armitage, 12 Keni Fisilau, 11 Mick McGrath, 10 Paul Bailey, 9 Ruairi Cushion, 1 Rob Dugard, 2 Gareth Evans, 3 Ryan Hopkins, 4 Dan Collier, 5 Tyler Hotson, 6 Sam Hocking, 7 Wayne Sprangle, 8 James Tyas.

Replacements: 16 Dale Farnham, 17 Cameron Mitchell, 18 Tyson Lewis, 19 David Morton, 20 Davy McGregor, 21 Addison Lockley, 22 Herbie Stupple, 23 Aaron Carpenter.
