Argyle TV date confirmed for League One clash at MK Dons
High-flying Plymouth Argyle will have the chance to showcase their ability to national audiences with back-to-back away games being broadcast live early next month.
The Pilgrims' FA Cup second round tie away to League Two side Rochdale will be shown live on ITV on Sunday, December 5, with a 12.15pm kick-off.
That follows Argyle's 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in a first round replay at Home Park last night.

As a consequence of their Sunday date at Rochdale, the Pilgrims' scheduled League One trip to MK Dons has been put back 24 hours to Wednesday, December 8 (7.45pm).
That fixture against another of top sides in the division will still be shown live on Sky Sports as was originally planned.
However, that decision has had an impact on Sheffield Wednesday too, as the South Yorkshire club confirmed in a club statement this morning.
It read: "The Owls’ December clash with Portsmouth at Fratton Park has reverted to Tuesday 7 December (7.45pm). The fixture was moved to Wednesday 8 December for live selection by Sky Sports.
"As Plymouth overcame the Owls in the FA Cup first round, the Pilgrims will now travel to Rochdale on Sunday 5 December in front of the live ITV cameras.
"Argyle’s League One clash at MK Dons, which was set for the following Tuesday live on Sky Sports, now moves to Wednesday 8 December.
"As a result, our clash at Fratton Park reverts to Tuesday 7 December, the game remains live on Sky Sports with the same kick-off time, 7.45pm.
"We apologise for any inconvenience caused for a situation outside of the club’s control."
Argyle will play three away games in seven days, starting against Rochdale, followed by MK Dons and ending with the trip to play Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, December 11.
