Former England striker Paul Mariner has taken charge of football activities at Coca-Cola Championship strugglers Plymouth after they announced a reshuffle of their management team.

As part of the changes, manager Paul Sturrock, currently in his second spell at Home Park, is to take up a business-support role.

Mariner, who started his successful playing career with Argyle in 1973, has been back at the club for the last two months working as Sturrock's assistant.

Plymouth are currently second bottom in the Championship table and three points adrift of safety having lost their last three games.

Chairman Sir Roy Gardner said: "The board has decided to make this move following the continuing poor set of results.

"We are convinced we have the capability to improve our performance and remain in the Championship."
