Rob Jones WILL be interviewed for the vacant manager’s job at Doncaster Rovers, the interim boss has revealed.

Rovers have produced mixed results during Jones’ time as interim boss, which likely ended in competitive terms with Tuesday night’s disappointing defeat to York City in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

The club are expected to appoint the new permanent boss next week and Jones will have one last chance to impress in an interview.

Following the defeat at York, he revealed he had yet to take part in his interview but said it would be ‘soon.’

The Star understands Jones’ interview is currently scheduled for Tuesday.

Rovers had been expected to appoint a manager by Monday after announcing a ten day interview period in a statement released last weekend. That period now looks set to be extended well into next week.

It appears that Jones’ interim role will last longer than expected with the 35-year-old likely to undertake much of the preparations for next weekend’s home game with Bradford City.

Potential candidates Lee Clark and Neil Redfearn watched Rovers at York on Tuesday night.

Darren Ferguson and former Notts County boss Shaun Derry are also thought to be contenders for the position.
