After Grant McCann left Doncaster Rovers for Hull City this week, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He comes in, replacing Nigel Adkins, after guiding Rovers to the League One playoffs last season, losing out to Charlton Athletic in the semis.

Take a look at who are the top six favourites below and on the next page.



Hasselbaink’s last club was Northampton on 2 April 2018 after a loss to Peterborough made it nine games without a win and had the Cobblers in the relegation zone with five games remaining of the 2017–18 season.

His previous clubs he’s managed are Queens Park Rangers, Burton Albion (won League Two promotion with in 2014/15) and Royal Antwerp.

Michael Appleton has managed Portsmouth, Blackpool, Blackburn Rovers, Oxford United, been caretaker of Leicester (for two matches, victorious both times) and an assistant to Craig Shakespeare.

He won promotion from League Two and reached the Checkatrade Trophy final (went on to lose to Barnsley) in his second season with Oxford United back in 2016.

David Flitcroft most recently managed Mansfield Town, he was appointed in March 2018, and lead them to three points outside the League Two playoffs in 8th.

By the end of December 2018, Mansfield were defeated just once under Flitcroft in the 2018/19 season. They were also the only side in the top four English divisions unbeaten away from home, until they were beaten by Carlisle.

His contract was terminated on 14 May 2019 after failing to achieve promotion to League One, having lost to Newport County in the play-off semi-final.
