Coventry's interest in Oxford United boss waning

First published in U's News

Sources in Coventry have suggested Chris Wilder is not among the front runners for the vacant Sky Blues job.

Oxford United boss Wilder has been the overwhelming favourite with bookmakers since the weekend.

The Oxford Mail understands he is not on Coventry's initial shortlist, which will be narrowed down from the 55 applications hoping to replace Andy Thorn.

It does not necessarily rule Wilder out altogether, but dampens rumours City were preparing an approach to United before the weekend.

They are not due to begin interviews until next week.
