Tony Pulis leads the way to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Cardiff City

Tony PulisTony Pulis has emerged as the early frontrunners in the Next Cardiff City Manager Market following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian's exit comes just over 24 hours after the Bluebirds lost 1-0 at home to Middlesbrough, which extended their winless run to four matches, and in the process left them languishing down in 17th in the table.

Solskjaer, 41, was subsequently locked in crisis talks with Bluebirds billionaire owner Vincent Tan on Wednesday afternoon, which ultimately ended with the former Man Utd player becoming the latest casualty of the Championship Sack Race.

According to reports Cardiff are now keen to make a rapid appointment, although they have announced that Danny Gabbidon and Scott Young will take charge for the trip to 7th placed Derby County on Saturday. Narrow favourite Pulis has been out-of-work since his shock departure from Crystal Palace just two days before the Premier League season, however the in-demand manager could now be set to make a barnstorming return to the dugout.

Meanwhile Paul Hartley, who has emerged as a surprise contender (best priced 11/4), has been in charge of Dundee since February. The 37-year-old led the club to the Scottish Championship title last season and went on to lead the club to a 4th place finish, and has since enjoyed an undefeated start to life in the SPL (W2 D4). However, according to reports he is likely to stay at the SPL club.

Hot on the duo’s heels are the likes of Dave Jones, Karl Robinson, Neil Lennon and Dave Platt, whereas Tim Sherwood is a 33/1 long shot.
