Rovers close to appointing new manager

Sligo Rovers could announce the appointment of a new manager on Friday.

The Bit O’ Red are believed to be on the brink of selecting a replacement for Dave Robertson, who left the club two weeks ago.

The club’s selection committee have been meeting with potential candidates all week, and are understood to be close to confirming their decision.

Interim boss Declan McIntyre will remain in charge for tomorrow’s northwest derby against Derry City at the Showgrounds.

Tonight in the League of Ireland Premier Division, Finn Harps host Drogheda United.

Kick-off in Finn Park is at 8pm.
