Gary Bowyer is currently out of a job after he resigned as Blackpool manager earlier this year.

He had been in charge of the Tangerines in June 2016 after the club’s relegation to League Two.

In March 2017, he was hit by boiled sweets thrown by Newport County fans.

In May 2017, Bowyer took Blackpool back up to League One in his first season in charge, his side beat Exeter City in the League Two Playoff Final.

He then resigned on the 6th of August after the first game of the season.

Current odds on BetVictor: 6/1



In June, Darren Ferguson resigned as manager of League One club Doncaster Rovers after “discussions with the board”.
