Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O’Driscoll has received a public vote of confidence from Chairman John Ryan, despite the club remaining anchored at the foot of Championship table and winless since the season began. O’Driscoll, who’s last League success in charge came back in March, has spent five years at the Keepmoat, but his future has appeared under threat following a string of poor recent results. Ryan however has backed the former Bournemouth coach and told BBC
“I’ve never responded to hotheads who want to sack somebody, I don’t think it’s ever worked, look at Sheffield United.”
Doncaster’s latest defeat came away at the Madjeski Stadium, losing 2-0 to fellow strugglers Reading. On Saturday that face a resurgent Crystal Palace side who will be buoyant following their progress in the Carling Cup midweek. Nevertheless, O’Driscoll will be looking to secure that elusive first win this weekend, as he aims to consolidate Doncaster’s position in English football’s second tier for a fifth consecutive year.
