Kidderminster boss Mark Yates has confirmed he has held talks with Cheltenham over the managerial vacancy at Whaddon Road.

Yates was approached by the Robins last week after Martin Allen left the club by mutual consent.

And he told the Kidderminster Shuttle: "I have spoken to Cheltenham but it wasn't an extensive chat. I think the club have a few people to talk to so we'll see how things develop."

Kidderminster have made a request for compensation for Yates and assistant Neil Howarth should Cheltenham decide to move for the duo.

Harriers chairman Barry Norgrove said: "Obviously we've got a higher valuation and they've got a lower one and we'd have to meet somewhere in the middle.

"Ideally, we wouldn't want Mark or Neil to leave, they know the players and have done a good job with them this season."
