Sturrock's side lost 1-0 at relegation rivals Norwich on Saturday and the Argyle boss is calling for players from Tuesday's home reserve league game against Bristol City to "turn my head".
He said: "It's simple really. We have lost two games away from home and we have a big match at home against Burnley on Saturday.
"The way players can force their way back into the side is by training well and playing well when the opportunity arises. Tomorrow those players who did not feature on Saturday get their opportunity."
Argyle's attack against City will be lead by Jermaine Easter and Steve MacLean with new capture George Donnelly starting among the substitutes.
