Ryan told Sky Sports News that he intends to make a decision on who will replace the former Wales manager after returning from a 10-day holiday and was in confident mood regarding potential applicants.

"We have some great CVs from earlier in the season (following the departure of Dean Saunders) and I'm sure we'll get one or two more.

"We will then draw up a shortlist and make a decision. I'm hopeful we will have a manager in two weeks."

Rovers currently have just eight senior professionals tied to contracts and the primary role for the incoming manager will be to build a squad capable of competing in the npower Championship following this season's promotion from League One.
