Nigel Pearson’s side were beaten 2-0 away at Reading last time out. Here is a look at some of the latest news from around the Championship...
Hull City close in on new boss
Hull City are reportedly closing in on the appointment of Liam Rosenior as their new manager. The Tigers appear to have found their permanent replacement for Shota Arveladze. Ex-Bristol City defender Rosenior, 38, spent five years at the MKM Stadium as a player and made 161 appearances in all competitions. Hull Live have reported his return to East Yorkshire could be announced early next week.
Preston North End eye striker
Preston North End are said to be keen on Haka striker Lee Erwin. The former Leeds United man is due to become a free agent after this weekend when his contract in the Finnish top flight expires. Football Insider report that Ryan Lowe’s side and Hull are both interested in snapping him up on a free transfer. He has been prolific since moving to Scandinavia and has scored 20 goals this year.
Millwall could loan out attacker
Millwall boss Gary Rowett has said that attacker Isaac Oloafe could be loaned out in January. He has told London News Online: “He’s another one who has to get his head down and see if there is an opportunity for him. He’s worked hard and played well in the U23 games. The likelihood is that he will get the opportunity to go back out on loan in January.”
The 22-year-old has risen up through the Lions’ academy and has played three times for their first-team. He spent the past couple of years on loan at Sutton United and fired 26 goals altogether for the London club.
