Former Coventry City striker John Hartson has applied for the manager's job at Newport County.

The job became vacant after former City loanee Dean Holdsworth left to take over as manager of Aldershot Town on Wedenesday.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Welsh international is the leading contender for the job which Tim Harris is doing on a caretaker basis.
