Howard Wilkinson is pleased to see former Manchester City and England boss Sven Goran Eriksson named director of football at Notts County.

Wilkinson, who until two years ago was on the Notts board, greeted the news just as warmly.

"It will be great for Notts County's standing," he said. "It'll give them loads of publicity and raise their profile. Sven has a great deal of experience at all levels of the game."
