Doncaster Rovers caretaker boss Gary McSheffrey will find out today if he has landed the full-time role, as per a report by the Doncaster Free Press.
Doncaster Rovers are poised to make a big step in their hunt for a permanent boss.
They sacked Richie Wellens on 2nd December and have been carefully weighing up their next appointment.
McSheffrey, 39, has been in interim charge over the festive period and has won one in his four games in all competitions at the helm.
The former winger has been interviewed for the job along with external candidates.
‘I don’t fully expect it’…
Donny lost 3-0 at home to Sunderland yesterday and he provided this update on the situation:
“We’ll discuss things tomorrow with the board. I’ve got a meeting tomorrow and we’ll find out their decision.”
“I don’t fully expect it (to get the job). It’s their decision and there were a lot of candidates with a lot of quality managers who put their names in the hat.”
