FORMER Barnsley and Rotherham United manager Mark Robins has been appointed boss at struggling Coventry City.

Robins, 42, enjoyed a successful two-year spell in charge of Rotherham between 2007 and 2009 before taking the reins at Barnsley, a position he also performed strongly in until May last year when differences with the Oakwell board forced him to resign.

But the former Manchester United, Norwich and Leicester striker is certain to have his work cut out with Coventry who, aside from their ongoing financial concerns off the pitch, are struggling to adapt to life in League One following relegation.

Robins was one of the most successful managers in Rotherham’s recent history, steering them comfortably to Football League safety despite a 17-point deduction.
