Frank Sinclair and David Dunn suggest managerial candidates for Derby

Paul Clement was sacked as the Derby County head coach on Monday evening.

Former Chelsea and Leicester City defender Frank Sinclair has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Derby County should appoint Chris Powell as their new (permanent) head coach.

Derby sacked Paul Clement as their head coach on Monday evening, and have placed academy director Darren Wassall in charge of the first team for the rest of the season.

Sinclair believes that Powell, who was sacked by Huddersfield Town in November, would be a good fit for Derby.

Meanwhile, former Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City midfielder David Dunn has suggested on Twitter that Ian Holloway, who has managed Queens Park Rangers, Crystal Palace and Millwall among other clubs, would be a good managerial appointment for the Rams.

Derby are fifth in the Championship table at the moment with 51 points from 30 matches. The Rams are five points behind leaders Hull City, who have a game in hand.

The Rams will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Milton Keynes Dons at the iPro Stadium in the Championship.
