Martin Allen Sacked As Manager Of Gillingham

Martin AllenMartin Allen has been sacked as Manager of League One Gillingham, after the Gills lost to Shrewsbury at the weekend. Allen master minded their League Two title success last season but he has been given the elbow after a poor start to life in League One. So far this campaign, Gillingham have picked up just two wins with their 2-0 defeat at the weekend the final straw for the board.

The Shrewsbury defeat left the Gills languishing in 17th place in the table leading to chairman Paul Scally deciding to act. Two successive wins had appeared to have eased the pressure on Allen but another poor performance at the weekend has seen Allen walk the plank. Martin Allen has been a successful Manager in the lower leagues and leading Gillingham to promotion last season could have seen him given a little more time to turn the ship around.

Peter Taylor has emerged as the early favourite in the Next Gillingham Manager betting and he could be appointed sooner rather than later. Taylor had a spell in charge of the Gills back in 1999 and if he is given a second chance at the Priestfield, he will be expected to lead them to safety in League One. They are clearly an ambitious club and establishing themselves at this level is likely to be the main target for whoever takes over the hot seat from Martin Allen.

Other names featuring in the betting for the next Gillingham Manager include Andy Hessenthaler, who is of course another man with Gills history and Tony Pulis, who will surely be looking to get back into the game at a higher level. All the signs point towards Peter Taylor being appointed in quick time and he will need to get down to work immediately. Next weekend Gillingham play host to Preston in an important game and three points there will be exactly what the doctor ordered.
