Danny Wilson on the verge of becoming the new Doncaster Rovers managerby Jack Kitson / 14 October 2015, 10:24Tweet
Danny Wilson has been installed as the red-hot favourite to become the Next Doncaster Rovers Manager. On Tuesday the 55-year-old was a whopping 20/1 outsider, however Sky Bet have slashed his odds down to just 1/4, with rumours rife that he is set to become the man to replace the sacked Paul Dickov at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Wilson is bidding to return to the managerial arena following an eight-month absence, having lost his job at Barnsley back in February following a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Crawley Town.
The 1997 LMA Manager of the Year has a bucket load of experience in the lower leagues with the likes of Barnsley, Swindon Town, Hartlepool, MK Dons, Bristol City, and both Sheffield clubs.
Wilson's most memorable moment was undoubtedly leading the Tykes into the Premier League - for the first time in their 125 year history - while he has also won promotion to League One with Hartlepool, and experienced Football League Trophy glory with Bristol City.
20th-placed Rovers, who axed Dickov in on September 8, are looking to have a new manager in place before Saturday's clash at home to Bradford City, with the former Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson, ex-Blackpool gaffer Lee Clark, and the club's interim manager Rob Jones also in contention for the post.
