Interim boss Mike Jackson has admitted he is happy to ‘go with the flow’ as he awaits further briefing from Pace, having led the side to two wins and a draw in nine days, since the surprise sacking of Sean Dyche.

There are increasing calls for Pace to hand the former Shrewsbury and Tranmere boss the job to the end of the campaign, and then look to appoint a permanent replacement.

Asked whether they wanted Jackson in charge for the last five games, or a new man for the remaining fixtures, 1,893 votes were cast, with the remarkable result of 99% in favour of the Under 23s boss staying on for now.

For now, Jackson is just going about his business, as he said on Sunday
