Lee Clark Set For Leeds After Huddersfield Sackingby Richard Smith / 15 February 2012, 15:53Tweet
With just 16 league matches remaining Huddersfield Town are on the hunt for a new manager after their shock decision to sack Lee Clark in a move that has left their supporters perplexed. The Terriors have only lost three league matches all season and are currently fourth in League One and pushing for promotion to the Championship. Clark, who is widely regarded as one of the most talented young managers in the game, has instantly become the favourite in the Next Leeds Manager betting market and is also in the running to become the Next Wolves Manager.
Clark spent three seasons with the West Yorkshire club and led them to the League One play-off final last year where they were defeated by Peterborough. Earlier this season he took them on a memorable club-record run of 43 league games unbeaten and has remained with the club despite interest from the likes of Premier League side Sunderland. However, the 39-year-old has been linked with a move to Championship outfit Leeds ever since Simon Grayson was sacked, which is more than likely instrumental in his surprise departure.
The Next Huddersfield Town Manager betting market has opened up with the likes of Neil Warnock, Billy Davies and Simon Grayson in contention early on. Meanwhile, academy manager Mark Lillis has been placed in caretaker charge for their game against Exeter City on Saturday.
