Plymouth Argyle are facing another tough test, just days after losing their manager.

The Pilgrims are away to second in the League Port Vale on Saturday.

Carl Fletcher was sacked on New Year's Day after defeat to relegation rivals Bristol Rovers.

Roman Larrieu and Kevin Nancekivell have been named as temporary caretakers.

Roman said: "Just make sure they're prepared, and we've already started that. And the boys, although obviously not very proud of themselves. You never are if you're a player and your manager goes. But they're alright and they want to put the record right.

Kevin said the opposition will prove hard to beat: "They're a good side, they've got a lot of match winners, hence their position in the league, so we're well aware of that. But, you know we've got some good players as well. We're a good side and we intend to go up there and give Port Vale a real scrap and a real fight."
