Black: Boss de­lay could hurt Rovers

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

ERIC BLACK says Black­burn can’t af­ford to de­lay nam­ing a new boss – even if it means him los­ing his job.

Black has been in charge of Rovers in a care­taker ca­pac­ity since Steve Kean left last month, but has failed to win any of his four league games.

Black­burn’s ap­proach to Billy McKin­lay has been re­jected by Ful­ham.

And ex-Coven­try boss Black, 49, wants a full-time ap­point­ment quickly if things are to move on at Ewood Park.

Black, who takes on Sh­effield Wed­nes­day tonight, said: “A de­ci­sion has to be made soon.

“It is in the best in­ter­ests of the club.”

Black ac­cepts he may not fit into the plans of a new chief, adding: “I have been in the game long enough to know how it works.”
