The team are bottom of the Championship after 11 games and are yet to win, with just three points on the board. His first game in charge is the trip to Watford, after the international break, on October 21.

Röhl offered an insight into how his teams could potentially be set up, when in an interview earlier this year he said: “I think it’s much worse when you don’t make a decision and leave everything open so as not to make any mistakes, than when a mistake happens.
