Could John Sheridan be set for a swift return to management?

John Sheridan has only been in the Job Centre for just over a week, but already the well-travelled boss is being linked with a swift return to management.

Notts County sacked Sheridan just two days into the New Year after a shocking club-record equaling run of nine straight League Two defeats, which left the club just one point above the relegation zone - Mark Robins is currently the narrow favourite to replace him in the Next Notts County Manager Market.

Northampton axed their own manager, Rob Page, on Monday, and yesterday (Tuesday) Sheridan stormed into contention in the Cobblers betting after bookmakers slashed his odds from 16/1 down to the 11/8 favourite (Sky Bet).

The 52-year-old is also an 28/1 (Sky Bet) outsider to return to former club Chesterfield, with whom he managed between 2009 and 2012, during which he led the Spireites to the League Two title and the Football League trophy, although the club were also relegated during his tenure.

Sheridan, who has held a staggering four jobs in just over 18 months, has also previously steered the likes of Plymouth and Oldham to play-off finishes.
