Coventry manager talk could give Carlisle Utd advantage
Last updated at 11:58, Thursday, 10 January 2013
Coventry build-up to their trip to Brunton Park could be disrupted after manager Mark Robins was strongly linked with the Doncaster job.
Bookies have slashed the odds on Robins leaving the Sky Blues after just four months.
The Coventry boss, who brings his side to Carlisle on Sunday, has dismissed the talk as “absolute speculation”.
But Robins remains the odds-on favourite to replace Wolves-bound Dean Saunders at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Doncaster chairman John Ryan is reportedly a big admirer of Robins following his previous time in South Yorkshire with Barnsley.
The 43-year-old has guided Coventry away from the danger zone in League One and into the promotion race.
It was United who inflicted defeat on Robins in his first game in charge at the Ricoh Arena, when Danny Cadamarteri and Danny Livesey gave the Blues a 2-1 win.
Doncaster have also been linked with Oldham chief Paul Dickov, St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas and Huddersfield assistant Glynn Snodin.
