Favourites for Notts County manager

After Harry Kewell was sacked by Notts County 10 weeks after being appointed, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at Meadow Lane.

Kewell left Crawley Town to take over from Kevin Nolan on 31 August on a three-year contract but after winning only three of his 14 matches at the League Two club, leaving them in 22nd place, he’s was axed.

Take a look at who are the top five favourites below and on the next page.

Martin Allen previously managed Notts County between 2011 and 2012.

He won eight points out of the seven games he was in charge of at the end of the 2010–11 season, enough to avoid relegation.

Is currently the manager of National League strugglers Chesterfield, who sit just outside the relegation zone.

He won promotion from League Two in 2012-13 and the National League in the 2014-15 season.

Current odds on Sky Bet: 16/1

Hurst guided Salop to the Playoff Final in May, despite starting the season as favourites for relegation, alongside the final of the Checkatrade Trophy.

He left to join Ipswich in the summer but was sacked in October but was sacked after taking them to the bottom of the Championship table.

However, it’s said that Hurst is interested in talking to Notts County about the vacant managerial role at Meadow Lane, according to reports from Nottingham Post journalist, Leigh Curtis.

It has also been reported that he is keen to return to Shrewsbury.

Current odds on Sky Bet: 8/1

Neal Ardley left AFC Wimbledon earlier this week.

Ardley, who resigned from the club, was the third longest-serving manager in England’s top four divisions, having taken over in October 2012, but with the club 23rd in League One and only just beat Haringey Borough in the FA Cup last week.

He managed 326 games, won 106, drew 93 and lost 127 whilst in charge of the Wombles between 2012 and 2018. In the 2015/16 season, he won the League Two playoffs with AFC Wimbledon and avoided the drop on numerous seasons.

Current odds on Sky Bet: 3/1
