Andy Thorn has been asked to stay on as Coventry manager next season despite his team's relegation to League One being confirmed by Saturday afternoon's 2-0 home defeat against Doncaster.

The Sky Blues went into the game relying on results elsewhere to survive but, in the end, their loss against Rovers - thanks to late goals from James Hayter and Simon Gillett - meant their fate was sealed at the Ricoh Arena.

Thorn said: "I am bitterly disappointed. I feel for the players because it has been really tough. We have stuck in there and kept having a go."
