DRFC Former boss being linked with two clubs

Former Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll is again being reported with a possible return to management.

O`Driscoll has been without a job since being placed on gardening leave by Rovers in September.
He is now being linked with the vacant manager`s positions at Bristol Rovers and Preston North End.

League Two side Rovers sacked Paul Buckle last week after a poor run of results and O`Driscoll is 8/11on with Skybet.com to fill the post.

Preston are searching for a new manager after sacking Phil Brown last month and O`Driscoll is believed to be on the shortlist of new chairman Peter Ridsdale.

The former Bournemouth boss has been reported to be helping one of his former players Carl Fletcher in recent months at Plymouth Argyle after Fletcher took over the player manager role.

O`Driscoll was linked with the vacant Portsmouth manager`s job in October before they opted for Michael Appleton.

This time last year Rovers had managed to hold off advances from Sheffield United who had tried to lure O`Driscoll to Bramall Lane.

Having gone into the last New Year with a real chance of reaching the play offs, Rovers endured a horrendous injury list that saw them slip down the championship table and only manage to avoid relegation on the penultimate weekend of the season.

A poor start to this season eventually saw O`Driscoll replaced by Dean Saunders, after they had picked up just one point from their opening seven games.

O`Driscoll made his name at Rovers after joining them in 2006. He helped them win the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy in his first season with the club.

The following season he led the side back into the second tier of English football for the first time in fifty years with a dramatic play off final win over Leeds United at Wembley.

His style of entertaining passing football earned the side the tag 'Arsenal of the championship` during his time with the club and it must surely, only be a matter of time before he is back in football management.

I wish him luck wherever he goes but clubs will have to be patient with him as he gets the players playing the way he likes to play.
