Plymouth Argyle manager Carl Fletcher says he is looking forward to working with a new coach at the club.

Argyle are set to appoint an experienced coach to mentor Fletcher.

Former Doncaster and AFC Bournemouth boss Sean O'Driscoll has been linked with the role and was at Home Park to watch Argyle beat Burton 2-1.

"It's another set of eyes and another opinion. We're young and hungry. We're not a closed book and think we know it all," Fletcher told BBC Radio Devon.

"We just want to learn and try to get better as much as we can and you learn so much in football and it's nice to have an outside voice."

Fletcher's side got their first win of 2012 when they beat Burton 2-1 on Saturday, with former captain Paul Wotton making his first start since returning to the club last week.

"We've got a lot of voices in there now with [Darren] Purse, Chaddy [Nick Chadwick] and Wottsy," Fletcher said.

"They're big characters and experienced and it brings out the other lads as well.

"The younger ones are learning from them each and every day about what football's all about really."
