Phil Brown is stepping back into football at Hartlepool United.

Former Hull City boss Brown is set to be unveiled as the new manager of bottom-placed League One side Hartlepool United today, says the Daily Mail.

Brown is staying in Hartlepool on Monday night having watched their reserves beat Gateshead reserves 2-1 with Brian Horton – his former No 2 at Hull who is expected to join him at Victoria Park.

The 53-year-old - first interviewed for the job two weeks ago - will hold further talks on Tuesday but is expected to be announced before the day is out.
