Marlon wants Thorn to be next City manager Marlon King has said that Andy Thorn and Steve Harrison should get the City manager's job on a permanent basis.Speaking to the CT after the 2-2 draw at Derby County on Saturday in which he scored, King said:Thorny and H have taken over the reins brilliantly," said King after a bitter-sweet performance at Pride Park on Saturday when he scored the second goal as Coventry opened up a 2-0 lead but then conceded the penalty that gifted Derby an equaliser."He's not someone who is new to the club. "He has been around it and been a pro for many years, as has Steve Harrison who has had a good career in management, so the club is in comfortable hands with those two and the boys have responded."It's all right touting big names around but that never guarantees you success. "Thorny and H have been here a long time - they know the club inside out and they know the players."Their message is to go out and express ourselves, give all we've got and not worry about what's going on. "And that's what the boys have been doing. "We are really enjoying our football and don't look like a side who are where we are in the league - we are looking at how many places we can jump rather than fall and if you can see from the way we are playing that we're not going out there with any fear."Relegation has not been part of the conversation in the dressing room because we believe in ourselves, and going on the first 40 minutes at Derby you would have thought we were at the top end of the table rather than where we are."
