Championship - Robins takes Huddersfield job

Huddersfield have confirmed the appointment of Mark Robins as their permanent new manager.

The Terriers, who sacked Simon Grayson three weeks ago after going 12 games without a win in the Championship, were granted permission to approach the 43-year-old on Tuesday after Coventry had rejected an initial approach.

Former Rotherham and Barnsley boss Robins, who had only been installed as Andy Thorn's permanent successor at Coventry in September when he signed a three-year contract, will take charge of his first game on Sunday when Town take on Wigan in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
