Rotherham United Manager Search Hots Up

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 29 March 2012, 10:07

Rotherham United’s search for a new manager has gathered momentum with the club close to finding a replacement for the sacked Andy Scott. The Millers have cut down 40 applications to just five, with former Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws the frontrunner in the Next Rotherham United Manager betting market. Chairman Tony Stewart is believed to be keen to sign an experienced manager and will now begin the interview process, with an eye to making an appointment next week.

The League Two side gave Scott the boot last week after a poor run of form had seen them slip out of play-off contention. With a top seven finish now looking unlikely the club are looking to build to the future. Alongside Brian Laws other contenders in the running are reportedly Crawley Town boss Tony Evans, Blackpool’s assistant coach Steve Thompson, Nottingham Forest coach Sean O’Driscoll and also the original favourite in the betting Mark Robins, with the former Rotherham manager reportedly keen for a return to the club. The 42-year-old gained numerous plaudits for the work he did at the financially stricken club, who entered administration during his time there.

Rotherham face bottom of the table Hereford United on Saturday in a match they must win in order to hold onto their very slim hopes of a top seven finish. With seven matches remaining they are 12 points adrift of the play-offs but you can never say never in football. Stan James have Rotherham as the odds-on 8/11 favourites, while Hereford can be backed at 7/2, with a draw available at 5/2.
