Northampton Town In Search Of A New Manager

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 15 November 2011, 10:41

Northampton Town are on the hunt for a new manager after parting company with Gary Johnson after eight months. The League Two club have had a poor start to the season where they've been dumped out of all cup competitions and find themselves struggling down in 20th in the league. Chairman David Cardoza has stated that he will wait until after Saturday's match with Shrewsbury before thinking about possible replacements. He will reportedly have to sift through over 50 applications as he attempts to find the right man to succeed Johnson.

During his 34 games in charge Johnson oversaw just seven wins, not the best of returns by any means. After saving the club from relegation in the penultimate game of the last campaign the club were expected to push on and mount a promotion challenge this season. However, the Cobblers have had a troublesome start, picking up just four wins from 17 league games, with only one coming at home. Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup first-round defeat at Blue Square Bet Premier side Luton Town proved to be the last straw with Johnson departing by mutual consent.

Former Town boss Colin Calderwood has emerged as the early favourite in the Next Northampton Town Manager Betting, with odds of 8/13 with Stan James. Other early contenders include Mark Cooper, Steve Tilson, David Lee and Gary Simspon. Cardoza has revealed that he is in no rush to appoint a new manager and for the meantime assistant manager David Lee will take temporary charge, assisted by player-coach Andy Holt.

Northampton, who are on a run of six defeats in seven matches, host Shrewsbury on Saturday in their fist match without Johnson. Shrewsbury have had an impressive start to the season and are currently fourth in the league and just one point outside the automatic promotion places. Stan James have the League Two high flyers as the 11/8 favourites to come away with the win, while Northampton can be backed at 2/1, with a draw priced at 9/4.

All odds provided by Stan James.
