The Doncaster Rovers board are poised to make a final decision on who they want as the next manager of the club.

The second stage of in the interview process took place on Monday at an out-of-town venue.

Discussions were understood to have carried on into the early evening with three candidates interviewed, including Stuart McCall and Gary Caldwell.

And the Rovers board are due to finalise their decision on Tuesday before immediately open talks over terms with the new boss.

The Rovers squad returned to training on Monday without a new manager in place.

While both the candidates and the club’s hierarchy were understood to be unconcerned about missing the initial deadline of having the new man in place by the start of pre-season, there will be a desire to press on quickly once a preferred individual is identified.

Rovers seem unlikely to make an announcement until Wednesday at the earliest.

Meanwhile, fitness work with the Rovers squad will continue on Tuesday, overseen by fitness coach Rob Lee.

Assistant manager Gavin Strachan allowed the first day to conclude with some work with footballs after punishing fitness work in blazing heat at Cantley Park.

Tommy Rowe, recovering from a hamstring injury, did not take part in the full session.
