Sacked Haven boss Don could soon be back in Old routine

Don Gailer could be set for a swift return to Championship One – as coach of Oldham.
The former Whitehaven boss has been linked with a move to the Roughyeds, who have put together a five-strong shortlist for the vacant post.
Gailer, speaking generally over his future in the game, said: “At the end of the day I coach football and that’s what I want to do. Whitehaven have to see out my contract until the end of November, and I will look around to see if there are any other opportunities.
“If not, we will do a bit of travelling to see the rest of the country over a couple of months, maybe even duck over to Europe, or we might just pack up and go home, as we have missed our family.”
The Aussie guided Haven to promotion before being sacked last week, a move in part prompted by a fall-out with some players. And he feels he could adopt a different approach at a fresh club.
“If I hadn’t been given the directive to clean up the culture and discipline at Whitehaven I could have had a much easier run here and I wouldn’t have had to challenge so many players,” he said. “If I went to another club that just want to enjoy their footy and play some good football, without that directive, I think I could do a lot better.”
Oldham sacked coach Tony Benson early last month after a 42-16 defeat at Barrow sent them toppling out of the top six.
