FABRIZIO Piccareta will be in charge of the first team for tonight’s League One encounter at Tranmere Rovers.
Piccareta was confirmed as assistant to Paolo Di Canio on Wednesday 25th May 2011, but was handed the managerial reigns on a caretaker basis after Di Canio's departure on Monday 18th February 2013.
The assistant boss had spent the previous five years working as a youth coach with Inter Milan, where his work had taken him to countries as far flung as Cuba, Slovenia and Cambodia.
He helped guide the Robins to the League Two title in the 2011/12 season as the new management team enjoyed success at the end of their first term in charge under Di Canio’s tutelage.
Piccareta was named as caretaker boss following Di Canio's resignation on the eve of the League One trip to Tranmere and is expected to speak to the media following tonight’s encounter at Prenton Park.
