Saturday’s opponents suspend manager Moore.

Ronnie Moore

Coventry City travel to Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, but the home dugout will be without manager Ronnie Moore after the Merseyside club suspended the 61 year old.

Rovers, who crushed City 5-1 at Sixfields in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, have suspended Moore following a potential breach of betting regulations.

Moore is being investigated for potentially breaching the rules which state that no member of a football club can bet on a competition in which their team competes – in Rovers’ case League One, The FA Cup, League Cup and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

The FA has, however, neither confirmed nor denied that Moore was the subject of an investigation by its integrity unit.

Moore’s suspension is not the first scandal to hit the Merseyside club this season, after Ian Goodison and Akpo Sodje were named as part of the match-fixing scandal which also saw Oldham winger Cristian Montano sacked.

Whilst Moore is suspended, Tranmere have placed assistant manager John McMahon in temporary charge.
