The interview process to decide the next manager of Doncaster Rovers will continue into next week, the Free Press understands.

Rovers had been expected to unveil their new permanent boss by Monday after outlining a ten day recruitment period at the end of last week.

But it is understood that candidates will continue to be interviewed into Monday and Tuesday, suggesting an appointment will not be announced until late in the week.

Interim boss Rob Jones confirmed after the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat at York City that he will be interviewed for the role.

Jones will continue to oversee first team affairs until an appointment is made and now appears likely to carry out the majority of preparations for the clash with Bradford City at the Keepmoat next Saturday.

Rovers were watched at York by potential candidates Neil Redfearn and Lee Clark, the latter of which was backed into odds-on for the position with some bookmakers earlier this week.

Ex-Leeds United boss and academy chief Redfearn is also among the favourites for the vacancy at Rotherham United.
