Darren Ferguson Tipped To Be Next Championship Manager Sacked

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 20 September 2010, 13:16

Darren Ferguson knew when he took over at Preston that he was in for a long haul when he took on the challenge at Deepdale but even he must be surprised by the poor way his team have started the Championship season, after seven games North End lie second from bottom with just one win to show for their efforts. They are already looking set for a long season fighting relegation and Ferguson will know that unless results start picking up soon he will find himself edging closer to the sack. That is certainly reflected in the betting with Ferguson now as short as 5/2 favourite with VC Bet.comto be the next Championship Manager out of the door this season.

Ferguson will point towards bad luck for his teams poor start to the season, the team were 3-1 up at Burnley last weekend with ten minutes to go and contrived to concede three goals and lose the game and it is hard to blame the Manager in a situation like that. That will have knocked the teams confidence and they followed that up with a home defeat to newly promoted Norwich, all of that means they sit just above Portsmouth in the table and Ferguson feeling the heat as we really start to get into the meat of the Campaign.

Ferguson will not want to panic at the moment but will need this poor run to end as soon as possible, he may or may not take some comfort in the fact that he is not the only Championship Manager under pressure so early in the season with a number of big names looking over their shoulders. The Next Championship Manager To Be Sacked Betting is showing that the likes of Billy Davies are by no means secure in their positions, Davies has made it clear that he feels his squad is not strong enough to maintain a promotion challenge and at the moment he looks right with Notts Forest languishing in the bottom half. Forest went close to promotion last season but so far they have not been able to replicate that form with a thin squad, there is clearly no money there and the Sack Race feels he could be excellent value in this market.

The next Championship Manager To be sacked Betting is a market that is really hotting up this season with the pressure on the Managers at an all time high, the number of teams looking to lead their teams to the Premier League is bigger than ever meaning that many of them will fall short of their goals and will find themselves in hot water.
