Huddersfield Town's Manager Search Continuesby Jack Kitson / 11 February 2013, 09:49Tweet
Speculation continues to mount as to who Huddersfield Town will appoint as their new manager, with their strict recruitment process now entering into a third week. The Yorkshire club have yet to find a replacement for the sacked Simon Grayson, who was sent packing back on 24th January., and with only 15 crucial Championship games remaining they will need to get a move on if they are to boost their chances of safety.
Town's chairman, Dean Hoyle, has revealed that the club are keen to appoint a manager who can not only work on a tight budget but someone with a strong work ethic who places an emphasis on developing talented young players. Coventry boss Mark Robins remains the hot favourite in the Next Huddersfield Town Manager Odds, while the former Man Utd midfielder Nicky Butt is a shock candidate, with Graeme Jones and Nigel Adkins also contenders.
Town, under the watch of caretaker managers Mark Lillis and Steve Eyre, picked up a valuable point at home to league leaders Cardiff at the weekend. Their focus on staying in the league will be briefly interrupted on Tuesday when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in an FA Cup fourth round replay. Paddy Power have handed the Terriers long odds of 7/1 to win in 90 minutes, while the Foxes have been installed as the hot 2/5 favourites.
