AFC Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury has admitted that he is ‘nearing decision time’ after a ‘rigorous interview process’ in search of a new assistant manager.

Cherries legend Steve Fletcher stood down from the position three weeks ago and a number of possible candidates have been linked to the role.

The Daily Echo via Twitter stated that they believe Peterborough coach Mark Robson and Terry Bullivant are the Cherries final two candidates.

The Cherries have revealed that they received over 100 applications for the job and are expected to announce and introduce Bradbury’s new assistant at the fans forum at Dean Court on Wednesday evening.

Bradbury told

‘I’ve always maintained that I won’t be rushed into a decision over something so important.

‘From the word go we’ve gone about things the right way, interviewing as many potential candidates as possible, and not settling with second best.

‘It has been a rigorous interview process and we now find ourselves nearing decision time. I can’t wait to get the new man involved in the day to day side of things, and I am looking forward to introducing my choice to the supporters.’
