Mandaric, who gave caretaker boss Stuart Gray an extended period to prove his credentials before Christmas, also wants to concentrate on signing two players in time for the Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough.

"I'll talk to Stuart after the game at the weekend and we'll sort it out," Mandaric told the Sheffield Star.

"He has stabilised the team and the players are showing a lot of good signs. We cannot ignore that.

"We'll come to a final decision, but we want to concentrate on this important game against Leeds.

"Stuart is a good coach who is doing a good job. I'm very appreciative of that. He will stay one way or another.

"I cannot say now that he is going to stay as manager. I need to sit down with him and speak to him. It is a two-way thing."

Gray is expected to be handed the role after lifting Wednesday out of the relegation zone with three wins and two draws from seven league games since Dave Jones was sacked at the beginning of December.

Mandaric added that he hopes a replacement for central defender Roger Johnson, who has joined West Ham, and a new striker will be included in Gray's squad to face Leeds.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
