"We spoke to Graham on Saturday afternoon, as soon as his preparations for the Notts County game had been completed, to inform him that we wanted to offer him the position as first team manager win, lose or draw on Saturday.
"I think everyone at the club has been impressed with the way Graham has applied himself and in the way he has placed his own stamp on the role under difficult circumstances.
"He knows the players and the club really well, having been with us for over four years and we are confident that his experience at the highest levels of the game will help him with his stated aim of pushing this club forward.”
