After Darren Way got the boot from Yeovil Town following their 2-0 defeat to MK Dons at the weekend, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at Huish Park.

The result meant that has left them 22nd in League Two table and just two points above the relegation zone.

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

 

6) 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.
