Huddersfield offer Adkins manager’s job

Huddersfield Town
Hull boss Nigel Adkins is refusing to look past Rotherham despite their recent struggles ahead of Tuesday's clash at the KCOM Stadium.

Huddersfield have reportedly offered former Southampton and Hull City boss Nigel Adkins the chance to take over the struggling Championship club.

The Terriers have had an awful start to the new season after being relegated from the Premier League and parted company with manager Jan Siewert after just three games following a 2-1 defeat by Fulham.

Mark Hudson has been in caretaker charge since but they have lost all three games under his watch and currently sit second from bottom in the Championship after picking up just one point from six games.

Now, after going down the German route for the past four seasons, Town are ready to return to a domestic option, with Adkins the man they have identified as a viable option.

He has been out of a job since leaving Hull City in the summer, citing an untenable relationship with the club’s owner as the reason for his exit.

They finished 13th in the Championship last season despite, Adkins only having limited funds to improve his squad.

He has also had successful spells at Scunthorpe and Southampton, achieving promotion with both clubs, and less successful spells at Reading and Sheffield United.
