Clarets first-team coach Steve Davis could be in line to replace assistant manager Dave Kevan based on Steve Cotterill’s comments published on the Official Site.

Kevan is now taking up a similar role at Notts County.

‘I think everybody needs an assistant manager,’ Cotterill told the Offical BFC website. ‘I just need to get my head around it all and have a little think about it.

‘At the moment the workload for myself and Steve Davis will probably be more but I think we’re able enough to take that on. It may not be an assistant manager I need to bring in because I may have one under my nose. I’ll need to see how Steve Davis is over the next few weeks, but I think he’s come on leaps and bounds since he came here.

‘He came here as a qualified coach with no experience, but I think with his stature at the club everyone was prepared to give him that chance. I think then in fairness to him you have to earn that chance and Steve Davis has been first class.’
