Captain Curtis Nelson says promotion from League Two is the 'minimum' target for Plymouth Argyle this season.

Sixth-placed Argyle have won four of their last five games and have the best defensive record in League Two, having conceded just eight goals in 15 games.

"I think we've got to be looking to get promotion this year, that's a minimum for us as a team," Nelson told BBC Radio Devon.

"For me personally there isn't anything else that I'm looking to do."

Nelson, 21, was and in the current squad only goalkeeper Luke McCormick and player-coach Paul Wotton to have played more games for the club.

He made his debut as a 17-year-old and has now amassed 160 appearances in all competitions for the Home Park outfit.

"It's a really new experience taking over as captain full time, " the former Stoke City trainee said.

"It's one of those things where you grow into the role and I think I've done that as the season's gone on.

"It's very helpful having people like Luke and Peter Hartley in the team, obviously to guide you along they way.

"They've been captains and they've got a lot more experience than me as well, so they're trying to help me with different things.

"But I think it's something I'm growing into and hopefully I can carry on being a leader."
