Steven Pressley emerges as early favourite for Huddersfield Town job

Steven PressleyHuddersfield Town have reportedly targeted Steven Pressley as the man to replace the departed Mark Robins in the dugout, with the Coventry City boss emerging as the 11/4 favourite (Sky Bet) in the Next Huddersfield Town Manager Market. On Sunday Robins became the first casualty of the 2014/15 Sack Race after the Yorkshire outfit booted him out the exit door following an opening day drubbing at the hands of Bournemouth.

Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle is now believed to be keen to lure Pressley over to the John Smith's Stadium, which will no doubt be a tempting proposition for the 40-year-old due to the Championship club’s superior finances and resources. If the rumours are true then it’s a frustrating case of deja vu for the Coventry, who lost Robins to the Terriers back in December 2013. The Sky Blues will be desperate to avoid history repeating itself and prevent managerless Huddersfield from swooping in for Pressley, who has been in charge of the Midlands outfit since March of last year.

Elsewhere Billy Davies and Neil Lennon remain in the mix for the vacancy, while Brian McDermott, Neil Warnock and Tony Mowbray also feature in the betting. Joint caretaker managers Steve Thompson and Mark Lillis will be looking to impress in their new positions, and the duo will be thrust straight into the limelight tonight, with the Terriers in Capital One Cup action away to League One side Chesterfield. Thompson is as short as 3/1 with Coral, although he can be backed at a tasty looking 20/1 with Sky Bet, whereas Lillis can be found at 16/1 with the same bookmaker.
