Tykes hopeful over Robins

Published Add your comment

Barnsley director Don Rowing is hopeful that the club can agree a deal which would see Rotherham manager Mark Robins succeed Simon Davey in the Oakwell hotseat in the next few days.

Reds owner Patrick Cryne was due to return from holiday on Friday night, with a prospective meeting with Robins set up for some time on Saturday, and if talks go well then Robins could be unveiled as the new Barnsley manager on Monday.

"We're hoping to set up another meeting very soon; hopefully we can get a deal sorted," Rowing told The Star.

"We've been waiting for Patrick to come back from holiday, but we're looking to meet with Mark again.

"We would probably have to pay Rotherham compensation, but at this stage we've not reached that stage in the negotiations."
