Championship veteran Neil Warnock is set to be appointed manager of relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town until the end of the season.

The Terriers, who Warnock managed in the mid-1990s, sit second from bottom in the league with 16 matches remaining.

The 74-year-old, a second tier expert, has staved off relegation and won titles galore since beginning his managerial career in the 1980s.

No boss has won more second tier titles than the wily Warnock, as well as coming to the rescue of Middlesbrough and Rotherham United at the wrong end of the table.

An infamous figure in Berkshire, the Yorkshireman has battled with the club for over three decades- prominently with Sheffield United, Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City.

No club has beaten Warnock more than the Royals, including a meeting against his Middlesbrough side last season.

Paul Ince is set to take his struggling side to the John Smith's Stadium on the final day of the season in May.

With only four wins in 19 matches, Reading are 10 points clear of the relegation zone as we enter the final few months of the campaign.
