West Bromwich Albion are going to continue with James Shan as caretaker manager, at least for the time being.
Shan took over on a temporary basis on March 9h when Darren Moor was unexpectedly fired, and has since gone on to win all three games of which he has been in charge. That run has seen the team consolidate their fourth place in the table, and now they look firm favourites to at least make the plat-offs, although automatic promotion may be beyond them, with Leeds and Sheffield United more likely to take second spot after Norwich City.
That does not mean that their hunt for a new manager is over, as Sky Sports indicate. They could still bring in an experienced coach if there is any tail-off in results over the remainder of the season whilst, long-term Preston’s Alex Neil and former Fulham boss Slaviša Jokanonić continue to be linked with the job on a long-term basis.
