Kidderminster Harriers keen on appointing ex-Leeds United boss Dave Hockaday

Elland Road

The National League's basement club are keen on the former Leeds coach.

14 months ago, Leeds United informed Dave Hockaday he was no longer needed at Elland Road. It came after the inexperienced coach struggled early on at Leeds – as was to be expected by everyone it seems except Massimo Cellino.

Hockaday had no experience of leading a team the size of Leeds United and they were doomed to failure.

After six games in charge, he was sacked, clearly not the gamble Cellino had hoped he would be.

Hockaday, who has since been at Swindon Supermarine and Coventry City, is now wanted elsewhere.

The BBC report that the former Forest Green and Leeds boss is wanted at Kidderminster Harriers.

They claim that the Harriers are looking for a manager with a good track record with young players - something Hockaday boasts from his time with Watford. He is said to be the number one target along with Gavin Strachan, son of Leeds cult hero Gordon.

An appointment is set to be made ahead of Kidderminster's game v Altrincham next Tuesday.

If Hockaday does get the job it would be a real test of his abilities. The Worcestershire side are rock bottom of the National League with just seven points from 15 games this season.
