Huddersfield Town set to approach Coventry City for Steven Pressley

Steven PressleyCoventry City boss Steven Pressley is now the red-hot favourite to switch jobs and take charge of managerless Huddersfield Town, with reports surfacing that the Terriers are all set to make an approach for the 40-year-old. Pressley emerged as the 4/1 frontrunner for the vacancy on Sunday, but can now be found as low as 1/3 with Sky Bet in the Next Huddersfield Town Manager Market.

Huddersfield sacked Mark Robins last weekend following their opening day drubbing at home to Bournemouth. Club chairman Dean Hoyle is now believed to be eager to bring in a new manager as soon as possible in order to steady the ship, and in the process bounce back from their horrendous start to the 2014/15 season. But, while Pressley (who has 18 months of his Sky Blues contract remaining) may have emerged as the odds-on frontrunner, an appointment is by no means guaranteed, with the likes of the unemployed duo of Neil Lennon and Billy Davies also under consideration.

Meanwhile caretaker manager Mark Lillis did his chances of securing the job on a permanent basis no harm after leading the Terriers to a thrilling 5-3 victory at Chesterfield in the Capital One Cup. The 54-year-old academy manager, who can be found at 16/1 (Sky Bet) in the betting, is likely to still be in charge for Saturday's tricky trip to Cardiff.
