Doncaster to unveil new coach today

Doncaster are set to announce a new coach today, with caretaker coach Tony Miller set to hand over the reins.

Following Paul Cooke‘s recent departurefrom the club, Miller had been running the team, with chief executive Carl Hall also helping out with some duties.

“The players have given me everything in terms of commitment and effort and I’ve enjoyed being back for the last two weeks,” said Miller, according to the Doncaster Free Press.

“It’s just a shame I couldn’t have led them to their first win at Dewsbury on Sunday. It would have been nice to have done that.”

Miller confirmed at the weekend that he had only ever intended to stay in post for a fortnight.

“I told Carl I would do two weeks, which was last week and this week, with the plan for someone being in place this week,” he told his club’s official website.

“It was only short term for me until Doncaster got somebody in and I was delighted to help out.”

Dons prop Matt Carbutt felt that Miller had done a good job in the wake of Coooke’s exit.

“I think Tony was the right man to bring in after Paul Cooke left,” he said.

“We didn’t need someone to come in and tell us to do this and to do that. We needed someone to come in and almost put an arm around us as a group and tell us ‘you can do it’ which is something that Tony is really good at.”
