New Salford City boss Karl Robinson faces his first match in charge against League Two bottom side Forest Green Rovers.

The 43-year-old has an enormous task on his hands to turn around Salford’s season, with the team winless in 11 matches.

They take on Troy Deeney’s Forest Green Rovers tomorrow, who themselves have not tasted victory since late October.

The Gloucestershire side have become tougher to beat under the Ex-Watford striker, they are still rooted to the foot of the League Two table.

Despite no game being favourable, Robinson may feel he can take all the points in his first game and give the struggling Ammies and fans some much-needed confidence.

Salford City announce former Oxford United boss Karl Robinson as the new man to lead the relegation-threatened side.

Both sides have fallen from grace compared to one year ago with Salford towards the top of League Two and Forest Green Rovers in League One.

The Rainhill-born manager fills the Ammies’ managerial vacancy following the sacking of Neil Wood last week.

Neil Wood’s final league game was a 1-5 home defeat to Tranmere on Boxing Day, with Wood being removed the following day.

Robinson was appointed as the club’s new head coach this morning, with the game against Rovers his first in charge since his sacking at Oxford United in February 2023.

Salford’s owners have taken a gamble on the former Charlton Athletic manager, who has been without employment since being Sam Allardyce’s assistant at Leeds as the pair failed to keep the club in the Premier League.

Robinson is best known for his 3 seasons in charge of MK Dons, where he won them promotion to the Championship for the first time in their short history.
