Paul Dickov appointed Doncaster Rovers managerby Jack Kitson / 20 May 2013, 16:49Tweet
Paul Dickov is back in the management arena with League One champions Doncaster Rovers. The Yorkshire side had been on a hunt for a new boss since the end of the season when it was revealed that Brian Flynn would be stepping down and moving into a director of football role at the club.
Dickov had been the hot favourite for the Doncaster job for some time and will now be tasked with keeping them in the Championship next season. Sky Bet have handed Rovers long odds of 28/1 to win promotion up to the Premier League, while can be backed at 100/1 to go all the way and win their second successive league title.
Dickov had been out of work since parting ways with Oldham Athletic in February. The former Scotland international enjoyed a successful playing career at the likes of Man City, Leicester and Blackburn Rovers, before moving into management with the Latics in 2010. In his first season in charge he guided them to a 17th place finish, which was marginally improved to 16th in the next campaign. However, last season the club struggled but, despite knocking out Liverpool in the FA Cup, Dickov left the club in February due to their poor league form.
