Reports Gary Rowett approached for Blues job

It is being reported that Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett has been approached by Birmingham City over their vacant manager's position.

It follows the sacking of Lee Clark on Monday.

Rowett played for Birmingham during his playing career almost 100 times and has been a favourite to take over at St. Andrews since Clark's departure.

The Blues lost 1-0 away at Blackburn last night with co-caretaker manager Malcolm Crosby in charge.

An approach by Birmingham City has also apparently been declined by MK Dons over their manager Karl Robinson.

They were both treated after the incident at the under-16s match between Kenilworth Town and Coventry Sphinx over the weekend at Coventry University sports ground, after police were called to the scene.

One man was arrested following the Midland Junior Premier League game. It is not believed the fight involved any of the players.

It happened just days after the FA launched a new part of its Respect campaign which calls for all parents and coaches in grassroots football to set a good example.

FT: West Brom 2 - 2 Manchester United

West Bromwich Albion twice led Manchester United at the Hawthorns, but two second half goals by the visitors meant it a draw with two goals apiece.

The Baggies went ahead early on, thanks to an 8th minute goal by Stephane Sessegnon.

Marouane Fellaini equalised for Utd just minutes after the break, but West Brom reclaimed their lead in the 66th minute, courtesy of Saido Berahino.

But Daley Blind managed to secure a vital late goal for Louis Van Gaal's team, three minutes from time, to earn a draw.

Birmingham City have "parted company" with manager Lee Clark.

The club made the announcement a few hours ago after losing at home to Bolton on Saturday. Their first-team coach and chief scout have been placed in temporary charge.

Our reporter James Clark sent this report from St. Andrews.

Rams head coach Steve McClaren has made a move for Butland following an injury to first-choice keeper Lee Grant, who will be out for between four and six weeks after sustaining an ankle problem during Saturday's 3-0 win at Reading.

The 21-year-old is set to make his debut for Derby in their Sky Bet Championship fixture against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night.

"We're extremely pleased to welcome Jack Butland to Derby County and I would like to extend our thanks to Stoke City for agreeing to let him join us on loan," McClaren told his club's official website.

"Jack is a promising young goalkeeper and after Lee Grant picked up an injury on Saturday, as a management team, we quickly set about identifying someone to come into the group.

"We know a lot about Jack and he is someone who Eric Steele (Derby's goalkeeping coach) rates very highly."

Butland is behind Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorensen in the pecking order at Stoke and City boss Mark Hughes has been keen to get him out on loan.

The England Under-21 captain will now get some valuable minutes under his belt in the second tier - as he has done during the last two seasons at Birmingham, Barnsley and more recently Leeds.

Butland joined Stoke from Birmingham in January 2013 for a fee of just over £3 million. He has started three Premier League matches for the Potters.
