Mellon set for Town job

Sky Sports understands that Shrewsbury Town are set to appoint Micky Mellon as their new manager.

The Shrews lost their fight to stay in League One under Michael Jackson, who was appointed in February until the end of the season.

After failing to guide them to safety, Jackson will now make way for Mellon to take charge at the New Meadow.

42-year-old Mellon steps back into management after leaving his role as Barnsley assistant boss earlier this year.

Mellon's only previous role as a manager, was a highly successful one at Fleetwood Town as he masterminded their promotion to the Football League - before being sacked in December 2012.
