Mick McCarthy In Frame For Leeds Vacancy

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 15 February 2012, 12:43

It's not all doom and gloom for Mick McCarthy as he has emerged as the new favourite in the Next Leeds United Manager Betting. The Yorkshireman, who was sacked by Wolves on Monday, is reportedly keen for an instant return to management and has experience of guiding both Sunderland and Wolves into the Premier League, having won the Championship with both sides. Neil Redfearn, who is also in contention for the vacancy, is currently in caretaker charge and has won one and lost two of his three games so far.

Leeds gave Simon Grayson the boot at the start of February after they were hammered 4-1 at home by Birmingham City. Former QPR boss Neil Warnock was instantly installed as the hot favourite in the betting, with Steve Bruce also featuring prominently. Both managers have now taken a back step with McCarthy the leading candidate. At the moment Leeds chairman Ken Bates is giving reserve team manager Neil Redfearn a chance to prove his credentials, whilst he recently revealed that he turned down an application from the former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson who was sacked by Leicester City earlier this season.

Leeds' promotion hopes were dealt a further blow on Tuesday when they suffered a last gasp away defeat to struggling Coventry City. They have now lost twice on the bounce which leaves them six points adrift of the play-offs. As a result their odds have lengthened slightly to 16/1 to get promoted at the end of the season. However, with 15 matches remaining they still have every chance of finishing in the top six but will be eager to appoint a new manager soon to help them achieve this goal.

Leeds host rock-bottom Doncaster Rovers on Saturday in a match they'll be desperate to win in order to avoid three consecutive defeats. Leeds have been installed as the 7/10 favourites with Paddy Power, while Doncaster can be backed at 4/1, with a draw available at 5/2.
