Salford City have wasted no time in finding what they consider to be a suitable replacement for Richie Wellens who left on Monday following a 2-0 defeat to Cheltenham Town. Salford have been in the upper echelons of the League Two table but they have struggled to haul themselves to the play-off berths on the back of a disappointing drop in form. City have won just one of their last eight league matches and they now sit ninth in the table with six points separating them from the top seven.

The new manager’s remit will be to steer Salford back into promotion contention and Bowyer will certainly face a tough task as he attempts to turn things around at this relatively late stage of the campaign.

Richie Wellens was in charge of Salford City for just four months prior to leaving on Monday and his replacement arrived from Derby County where he was in charge of the U23 side. he had previous stints as manager at Blackburn Rovers, Blackpool and Bradford City.

Bowyer said of his move to Salford City:

“I’m delighted to be here. I’ve got to first and foremost thank Wayne Rooney [and] Darren Wassall at Derby County for being so helpful to allow me to come here.

“Obviously today is a case of meeting the players and setting the expectations of what we expect of them from now until the end of the season.

“We want them to be playing aggressive football both with and without the ball, and have a right good go at these remaining 11 games.

“We have an opportunity, like everybody else in this league, to try and force our way into the reckoning to try and get into the play-offs and see if we can do that.”
