Plymouth Argyle are starting their fight to escape the relegation zone.

The Pilgrims are facing a home clash against Morecambe on Saturday afternoon.

It is new manager John Sheridan's first match in charge, and with the side second from bottom in League Two, a win is badly needed.

The new gaffer has already made his first signing, Ipswich Town striker Ronan Murray. The 21 year old is on loan until the end of the season.

Sheridan said he is keen to attract more players to the club: "It's a new slate. The games are gone now and we are where we are. I'm just hoping that little different things that I say, because all managers are different, and hopefully I can just give information. At the same time, if I can bring in one or two players who are hopefully going to strengthen us."

Plymouth Argyle have not won a match since mid-December, and former manager Carl Fletcher was sacked on New Year's Day after a string of poor results.

But his replacement John Sheridan is confident the side can avoid relegation. He said: "Three out of the next four are at home, so I know this division, I know what it's like. They're all games that I think we can win. I'm going to go out with the attitude that we can win those games, and I want my players to have that attitude, because in the position we're in, we have to go and try to win games."
