Favourites for Oldham manager

After Frankie Bunn was sacked by Oldham Athletic on Thursday, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at Boundary Park.

The former Latics player replaced Richie Wellens in June after they were relegated to League Two.

They were unbeaten in six league games but after getting beat by Exeter City and Carlisle United, they currently sit 12th in League Two and 7 points off the playoffs.

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

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 after taking them to the bottom of the Championship table.

Current odds on BetVictor: 14/1

 

5) JOHN ASKEY

John Askey was a former player and manager of Macclesfield Town. He left the Silkmen for League One Shrewsbury Town earlier this year, however after a dismal start, he was axed after five months.

Askey won the National League in 2017/18 and was runners up with Macc Town in the FA Trophy in 2016/17.

Current odds on BetVictor: 12/1

 

4) KEVIN NOLAN

Kevin Nolan was recently linked with a return to Notts County, the club he was sacked at in August, and he was reportedly keen to re-join them too. However the club opted for Neal Ardley instead.

The former Bolton, Newcastle, West Ham player took Notts to the League Two playoffs last season. However, the manager was shown the door after they picked up one point in five league matches.

Nolan was also player-manager for Leyton Orient in 2016. His team won three of the four league games in his first full month of management. He was nominated for February’s manager of the month award. On 12 April 2016, with the team two points off the playoffs, Nolan was relieved of his duties as manager, the role given to Andy Hessenthaler.

Current odds on BetVictor: 10/1
