Kevin Blackwell under pressure in League Two Sack Race

Kevin BlackwellBury boss Kevin Blackwell is the early favourite for the chop in the League Two Sack Race (scroll down for full list of odds) following a pointless start to the 2013/14 campaign. The former Leeds manager was priced at 10/1 in the ante-post market but can now be found at 4/1 with Stan James, as he finds himself under pressure at this early stage in the season.

Back in May the struggling club, who had suffered relegation from League One last season, were reportedly 24 hours from closing. However, they were saved by businessman Stewart Day and their transfer embargo was subsequently lifted. Blackwell has been forced to shake up his squad, but they have been unable to make waves in the league yet, losing the opening game of the campaign 2-0 at home to Chesterfield, before suffering a 2-1 defeat at Oxford on Saturday. However, they did upset Crewe in the Capital One Cup, and can now look forward to a meeting with top-flight outfit Norwich in the Second Round.

Mansfield's Paul Cox is next in the running at 9/2 in the betting. Cox, who led the Stags up to the Football League last season, has ambitiously targeted back-to-back promotions, although his side have yet to win a game on their return to League Two. Elsewhere Colin Cooper (Hartlepool) can be backed at 5/1 to be the first league Two manager to leave, while Plymouth's John Sheridan is available at 6/1.
