Argyle caretaker unsure on future

Plymouth Argyle caretaker manager Tim Breacker says he is in the dark about his future at Home Park.

He took charge for Saturday's 1-0 win at Sheffield United following Ian Holloway's shock move to Leicester.

Breacker, who was Holloway's assistant, told BBC Sport: "I have asked the chairman Paul Stapleton to keep me informed of what is happening.

"But I don't think I am in the frame to get the manager's job here - I have not been told that I am."

The former Luton and QPR defender added: "As for me going to Leicester, I don't know - it is not really in my hands."

Swindon boss Paul Sturrock, who led Argyle to the Division Three (now League Two) title in 2001/02 and to the brink of the League One title two years later before leaving for Southampton, is the favourite to replace Holloway.

Sturrock refused to be drawn on the speculation linking him with a return to Home Park after Swindon's 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Family commitments meant Breacker had not been with the Argyle squad all week but he picked the team to face United along with coach Des Bulpin and goalkeeping coach Geoff Crudgington.

Breacker added: "I really did enjoy Saturday. I don't know whether I will be with the players on Monday morning yet but I thanked them for their efforts.

"This is a great club and whoever does take over here will get a good set of people.

"It was an absolutely amazing performance considering the sort of week that the lads have had. It has been very difficult and I can't speak highly enough of them.

"It was not a smash and grab victory, we could have scored two or three goals. The fear, leading by just one goal, was we would not get what we deserved. They threw everything at us but we fought all the way to the final whistle and it was a fantastic win.

"We are doing well in the table and it is not down to luck that we are up there. Not many teams can compete with us if we do what we can do. It is not a false position but we have to keep going."
