Coventry boss Iain Dowie has refused to comment on speculation linking him with the vacant manager's job at Leicester.

Dowie was thought to be Leicester chairman Milan Mandaric's first choice for the role when he took over at the Walkers Stadium earlier this year.

And following the recent departure of former Foxes manager Gary Megson, Dowie is again being rumoured as favourite to fill the empty Leicester hot-seat.

Dowie has declined to be drawn on the rumours and insists he wants to remain focused on Coventry's Championship fixture with Colchester on Saturday.

Big game

"I am not here to talk about anything other than Coventry City," Dowie told the Coventry Telegraph.

"I don't want to give any credence to any story, so I will talk about Coventry and nothing else.

"I am not going to say anything because you just end up being mis-quoted and re-quoted about different things.

"We have a big game against Colchester and then West Ham in the (Carling) cup and I am not getting drawn into any conversation about any other issues."

Fantastic manager

Meanwhile, Coventry chairman Joe Elliott is adamant Dowie will not be going anywhere.

"Iain is getting on with his job and we have three points at stake on Saturday," Elliot said.

"He is a fantastic manager and I certainly want him to remain here to complete his contract."
