Dolan placed in temporary charge

Reading have confirmed that former Academy Manager Eamon Dolan will take temporary charge of the first team after Nigel Gibbs also left the club.

There's currently no word on the fate of other first team coaching staff including Sal Bibbo and Karl Halibi.

Dolan arrived at the club after leaving Exeter where he managed for one full season and led the club to sixth in the Conference.

He succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Academy manager and helped oversee the devlopment of current first teamers Alex Pearce, Hal Robson-Kanu, Jem Karacan and Alex McCarthy.

I still don't see him as a long-term option but should we decend into some sort of Wolves-esque farce, I think he'll be a steady and respected pair of hands to see us through till the summer.

****EDIT*****

It also seems that Greek coach Yannis Anastasiou has left the club. The former Greek international joined the coaching setup back in January after spells at Panathinkaikos and Ajax.
