Jamie Pitman will remain in his role as Hereford United caretaker manager for the weekend clash with the Cobblers with the former Bulls midfielder impressing so far. United held top club Port Vale with only ten men last weekend and Pitman is keen to keep going in his new role, having stepped up from Physio to take the helm.
Having appeared over 150 times for the club, Pitman could well be an outsider to take full time control with the Cobblers’ own Steve Guinan apparently in line for a player-coach position. The likes of Les Parry and Nigel Adkins have all stepped out of physio positions to do well in management so there’s certainly no reason why Pitman shouldn’t be handed a chance.
Let’s just hope that he doesn’t further stake his claim this weekend!
