What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?
Leeds United's hunt for a manager is still alive as they seek a successor to Dave Hockaday, while the futures of many other managers in the Championship remain up in the air after Cardiff City and Fulham dispensed with managers Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Felix Magath respectively.
The pressure has alleviated to a degree on both Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman - after his side's 3-2 win over Rotherham United - and Blackpool's Jose Riga, with chairman Karl Oyston performing a u-turn on his decision to sack the Belgian.
Plus, there are plenty of transfer rumours continuing to do the rounds with the loan window presenting an opportunity for managers to bolster their squads.
