LUFC Bates- Redfearn still in charge on Saturday
Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says caretaker manager Neil Redfearn will still be in charge of the game with Doncaster Rovers on Saturday despite suffering his second defeat in four days when losing at bottom of the table Coventry City.
Bates stated last week that the club would place Redfearn in charge of the three games, starting with Brighton last Saturday and finishing with Doncaster this Saturday and despite two poor performances nothing will change.
Speaking to Ben Fry on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "We stated that he will be in charge of the next three games and Doncaster is the third game, so of course he will be, yes.
"We cannot speculate. The world and his wife have applied for the Leeds United manager`s position. It is a good one and it is an important one.
"We don`t do our discussions in public and will not comment on any of the silliness we have read about."
The bookmakers cannot make their minds up on the favourite for the vacant position. We have already seen a number of favourites for the position since Simon Grayson was sacked a fortnight ago.
Lee Clark was one of the early favourites and his odds have tumbled again following his sacking from Huddersfield Town earlier today.
Clark had drifted back out to around 12/1 for the job but following his dismissal he is now as short as 4/6 on with four of the leading firms.
