18 September 2015

David Dunn will make his managerial bow this weekend, when he takes Oldham Athletic to Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League 1.

Dunn was appointed as the new interim manager at the club following Darren Kelly's departure last week, and the 35-year-old is pleased with how the players have responded so far.

Speaking to the club's official website, Dunn said: “The Peterborough game has gone now and it is important we move on quickly. We need a good reaction from the players and we’ve had that over the past couple of days.

“The players have responded really well in training and I’m sure they are all looking forward to putting it right on Saturday.

“One thing in football is when you do suffer a defeat like that, you only have to wait a couple of days or a week to put it right so we will be looking to do that on Saturday.”

The former England international has brought in Keith Brown and Dean Holden to assist him, and he is relishing the opportunity to manage the Latics.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead the club and pick some good results up. It is a fantastic opportunity for me and one things for sure I’ll be giving 110 per cent on and off the training pitch,” Dunn added.

“One thing I have noticed so far is that the away support we have had this season has been fantastic so hopefully that continues and we hope to send them home smiling by 5pm.”
