Sheff Wed Make Cotterill Approach

Sheff Wed Make Cotterill Approach

Burnley football club have revealed that Sheffield Wednesday made an approach with view to speaking to Steve Cotterill about the vacant manger's position at Hillsborough.

The Owls wanted the Burnley boss to replace sacked manager Paul Sturrock, on the same day that sections of the Wednesday support staged a protest against the sacking of Sturrock before their 3-2 home win over QPR.

Chairman Barry Kilby said: 'We refused Sheffield Wednesday permission to speak to Steve on Friday.

'When any managerial job becomes available at the moment we have come to expect that Steve, one of the brightest young managers in the division, will become a target.

'Steve is clearly an ambitious man who wants to manage in the Premiership and I believe he can do that.

'But as far as we are concerned, we see our future as a Premiership club. We are going for promotion this season and we can do without these distractions.'

On the pitch, the Clarets played out their second consecutive goalless draw with Plymouth at Home Park.

The point sees the Clarets climb to 4th place in the league, and remain the only side still unbeaten away from home in the division.

Once again, we read that Cotterill is being headhunted, West Brom were heavily linked, and now its the turn of Sheff Wed who want to have a chat. After tonight's performance against Plymouth, (who I can say played a great game and had many chances) we were lucky to come away with a draw. Hopefully, Gifton doesn't have a serious injury, and McGreal can recover soon. Our squad isn't the biggest, but have bonded to perform well in the games so far played (except for one or two). Fourth in the league is still one of the best starts I've seen in a long time, may it continue till the end of the season! Up da Clarets!

the wendy's are all over the shop looking for someone new.... I woul dfind it strange if SC was to walk away from what he has worked hard to achieve here and you are in a great position to have a chance of going up... why do it.. why move to wendytown where he would be left to deal with all the mess that is going on at th emoment... whoever goes there it will take a long time to turn it around.... stay where you are steve..............
