Vale approach six over manager position

Published Add your comment

Port Vale have stepped up their search to find a replacement for Micky Adams by formally approaching six potential candidates.

Jim Gannon watched Vale's 2-1 win over Burton from the stands on Monday, while the club are also believed to have approached former Carlisle manager Neil McDonald, recently-sacked Bristol Rovers chief Paul Trollope and ex-Aberdeen boss Mark McGhee.

Another two un-named candidates have also been approached, and chairman Bill Bratt told the Sentinel: "We're hoping to interview candidates over the next couple of days and it's encouraging there are so many good people out there. Now we have to appoint the right one. But there are no favourites at this stage because we have to keep an open mind."
