Plymouth Argyle say John Sheridan is the man to save them from the drop.

The former Oldham and Chesterfield boss is taking over as manager.

The side suffered a four-nil defeat at the weekend - leaving them second from bottom.

Argyle owner and chairman James Brent said: “I am delighted to welcome John to Home Park.

“Following a distinguished playing career, John has a proven record of leading clubs to success in Leagues 1 and 2.

“John impressed the interviewing panel with his commitment to excellence and his approach to moving the club up the league table. He expressed an enthusiasm for attacking football and was confident in his analysis of what we needed to do to succeed. John noted his own experience of playing against Argyle at Home Park and the advantage that the Green Army’s passion gave to the home side.

“The Green Army has had a tough few years and deserves better: let’s all get behind John and the team and make Home Park a fortress once more.”

John Sheridan said: “I am very privileged to get this opportunity to manage the club. Everyone I’ve talked to says what a good club it is and what potential there is.

“I am very confident I can get us out of the position we are in if everyone - the players and fans - work together.

“I remember the support from the fans when I played down here with Leeds and Oldham, and that was one of the things that attracted me. From my time at Oldham and Chesterfield, I think I know what’s required from the players and what we need to do to succeed.”

It follows a weekend in which Argyle moved into the League 2 relegation zone for the first time this season after a heavy defeat to Port Vale at Vale Park.

After a fairly even exchange in the opening 30 minutes, Argyle went behind on 32 minutes to a Jennison Myrie-Williams effort from the edge of the box.

But it was what followed in the minutes afterwards that changed the game when, straight from the kick-off a collision between Ashley Vincent and Nick Chadwick led to straight red card for the latter.

The Pilgrims battled on to the break but after half-time faced wave after wave of Vale attacks.

The division’s leading scorer, Tom Pope, scored twice either side of a Ben Williamson effort to condemn the Pilgrims to their third consecutive defeat.
