Thorn receives assurances from Sky Blues
Andy Thorn has been asked to stay on as Coventry manager next season despite his team's relegation to League One.
The Sky Blues went into the game against Doncaster relying on results elsewhere to survive but, in the end, their loss against Rovers - thanks to late goals from James Hayter and Simon Gillett - meant their fate was sealed at the Ricoh Arena. Thorn said: "I am bitterly disappointed. I feel for the players because it has been really tough. We have stuck in there and kept having a go. "I am gutted because we put a hell of a lot of effort in and, regardless of not having players, we have had chances towards the back end of the season to climb out of it. Our home form has been brilliant up until the last two games and it's just been too much for us. "The club has asked me if I will stay and I have asked for assurance that they will give me some help with some good players coming in. "We'll just take it from there. I've spoken to them and said that it needs to be restructured and sometimes out of this you can come back stronger, but the player side needs addressing massively and they have assured me they will."
