Favourites for Plymouth Argyle manager

After Derek Adams got the chop by Plymouth Argyle on Sunday night, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at Home Park.

Assistant Paul Wotton also was 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.

Take a look at who are the top six favourites below and on the next page.



Hurst guided Shrewsbury Town to the Playoff Final last May, despite starting the season as favourites for relegation, alongside the final of the Checkatrade Trophy.

He left to join Ipswich in the summer but was sacked in October after taking them to the bottom of the Championship table.

Keith Hill was most recently the manager of Rochdale (for six years) with them sitting 22nd in the League One table after winning just once in 12 games since Boxing Day and are now five points adrift of safety after five straight defeats.

The former Blackburn, Plymouth, Rochdale, Cheltenham, Wrexham and Morecambe player also managed Barnsley but lost 41 of the 75 games he was in charge.

His managerial honours include winning League Two promotion twice in 2009/10 and 2013/14. He has also won the Third Division playoffs with Plymouth and Cheltenham in his playing days.

Gary Johnson is currently loving life managing Torquay United after leading them to promotion back to the National League as well as winning the National League South title.

He replaced Gary Owers at the Gulls in September of last year with the club having a lacklustre start, picking up only 12 points and 5 goals in 9 games.

Johnson’s side then went unbeaten for four months and eventually rising to top the table by mid-January. They then picked up 32 points from 39 and secured the title and got promotion for the first time since 2009 and the club’s first title since 1927.

Gary has also managed Cambridge United, Latvia, Yeovil Town, Bristol City, Peterborough United, Northampton Town and Cheltenham Town.
