Blackpool Set To Appoint Billy Davies

by Jack Kitson / 05 February 2013, 10:41

Billy Davies is reportedly set to become the new boss of Blackpool following a successful interview with the club. The Championship side have been managerless since Michael Appleton dumped them back in early January. They have since been linked with a plethora of names but they now appear to have found their man in Davies, who is the short-priced favourites in the Next Blackpool Manager Betting.
Billy Davies
Davies is an experienced manager who has previously been in charge of Motherwell, Preston, Derby and most recently Nottingham Forest, with whom he left in 2011. In 2007 he led Derby to the Premier League and he has since guided Forest to two play-off finishes.

A top six finish may just be out of reach for the Seasiders this season, with the club currently 10 points adrift of sixth-placed Middlesbrough. However, the key to storming up the Championship table is momentum and if they can get a few wins together then you never know.

If Davies is appointed Blackpool manager in the next day or two then his first match in charge will be at home to Millwall on Saturday. Paddy Power have priced the Tangerines as the 23/20 favourites for the win, while the 10th placed Lions can be backed at 12/5 to come away with the three points.
