Manager Profile

Nigel Adkins is back in the dugout with Championship side Hull City, with whom he took charge of in December 2017.

has been the manager of League One side Sheffield United since June 2015. The affable boss likes to employ a passing games, which has helped win him promotion up to the Championship three times - something he'll be bidding to boost to four with the Blades.

Adkins, a goalkeeper turned physiotherapist turned gaffer, is best known for his time in charge of Southampton, with whom he led to back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League, before harshly losing his job mid-way through the club's first season back in the top-flight.

Adkins started life out at Bangor, but his big break came at Scunthorpe - winning promotion from League One on two occasions during two spells at the helm while he also had a disappointing nine-month stint at Reading, during which he suffered relegation down down to the Championship.

It may not have worked out for him with the Royals, but the permanently optimistic manager has plenty of experience under his belt, which he will look to use to full effect at Sheff Utd.

The Sack Race's Opinion

In a job where tempers frequently run high, the permanently positive Adkins is an oasis of calm whose cheery demeanour, endless enthusiasm, and let's not forget trademark mantras, are refreshing in what can be a turbulent environment.

The ex physio has a proven promotion record, and his current task is to lead Sheffield United back up to the second-tier.
