Kevin Nancekivell: Plymouth Argyle ‘confident’ they can survive

Written by on May 2, 2024

Nancekivell, nicknamed ‘Mr Plymouth Argyle’ due to his long association with the club, having been a player, youth coach, first-team coach and caretaker manager, is in temporary charge alongside director of football Neil Dewsnip following Ian Foster’s sacking last month.

It is their second spell in temporary charge having led the side after Steven Schumacher left to take over at Stoke City in December.

Nancekivell and Dewsnip managed Argyle to two wins and a draw from their first three games in charge – including a 1-0 win over champions Leicester City.

But two losses at Stoke City and Millwall mean the Pilgrims, who have not been in the relegation zone all season, are still not safe.

“A lot of it will be in your heads, it’s hearts and minds really,” he said of the pressure on the final day.

“We’ll give them all the tactical information in the game plan, which we’ve done, and then it’s about them being in a really good place to be able to produce what we’ve asked them to produce, have that confidence to go and play, which they can.

“They’re more than good enough to go and get three points if they bring it to the show.

“They’ve all got big hearts, they’re all desperate to keep the club up, they all love the football club and now we’ve just got to produce it on the pitch.”
