Plymouth Argyle to find new manager at end of season after Derek Adams exit
Last Updated: 29/04/19 12:18pm
Plymouth Argyle will search for a new manager at the end of the season after Derek Adams left the club by mutual consent on Sunday with just one game to go.
Argyle have lost their last five Sky Bet League One games and are currently on a run of eight games without a win.
Saturday’s 5-1 defeat to Accrington saw them drop into the relegation zone and they face relegation-rivals Scunthorpe on the final day of the season on Saturday as they battle to stay in League One.
Adams' assistant Paul Wotton has also been relieved of his duties.
A club statement read: "The club would like to place on record its sincere gratitude to Derek, not only for his hard work and dedication in his management of the team, but also for his wider input into the club during four challenging and often exciting seasons."
Kevin Nancekivell will take charge of the team for the clash with Scunthorpe.
During his four-season tenure at Home Park, Adams won 92 out of his 213 matches in charge, losing 78 of those games.
The club has had dozens of managers express interest in the role within the first few hours of Adams' departure, Sky Sports News understands.
The Pilgrims currently occupy the final relegation spot on goal difference, and need to better Southend's result at home to promotion-chasing Sunderland - while also hoping Walsall do not win at Shrewsbury and overtake them - in order to stay in the third tier for another season.
