Phil Brown linked with Portsmouth vacancy

Phil BrownPhil Brown has emerged as the new 6/4 favourite (Bet Victor) to become the Next Portsmouth Manager. Pompey are currently on the hunt for a new boss after parting ways with Andy Awford earlier this week following a disappointing run of form, which left the club 14th in the table.

  • Portsmouth looking for fourth manager in under two years.
  • Brown's contract at Southend expires in the summer.

Caretaker boss Gary Waddock, who has been placed in charge until the end of the season, was originally installed as the early frontrunner for the permanent job, however the 53-year-old has since drifted out to 5/1 following Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at Stevenage. Waddock still has three matches remaining to prove his credentials, starting with the visit of 4th-placed Bury on Saturday, before two final games Mansfield and York.

Brown has been in charge of Pompey's League Two counterparts Southend United since March 2013, but with his contract at Roots Hall expiring in the summer, he could well be available next month.

However, the 55-year-old is currently fully-focused on leading the 5th-placed Shrimpers to promotion up to League One. The Blues are already assured of a play-off place, but they still cling into hopes of finishing in the top-3, with just five points separating them from the automatic promotion places with four matches remaining.

Brown has unsurprisingly refused to comment on speculation linking him with the Portsmouth vacancy, but rumours are rife that he is tempted by the role, although it is difficult to envision the experienced boss leaving Southend should they win promotion to the third-tier. Elsewhere, Harry Redknapp, Ian Holloway and Neil Warnock have all drifted in the betting market.
