Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan says he will do his best to get the nervousness out his players.

Sheridan guided Argyle to a in his first game in charge at Home Park since being last week.

"You can see the edge in the players and that's something I've got to get out of them," he told BBC Devon.

"But you've got to accept that, because we're near the bottom of the league and we know what's at stake."

It was only the second time since their 2-2 draw with Gillingham on 10 November that the Pilgrims had scored more than one goal in a game, and just their second win since October.

"We needed to get the three points," Sheridan said. "I'm really pleased with the players, their attitude has been different class since I've come in.

"To get two goals gives you a cushion and it's something to keep.

"Hopefully I can get that bit of nous in them that when you're in the lead just dictate the game a bit more and don't do silly things.

"I think a lot of our problems are little things like mis-kicking the ball and not clearing it properly, but I'm very pleased to get a winning start."
