Northampton Town remain tight-lipped on next manager appointment

Andy KingThe fight to become the Next Northampton Town Manager remains a two horse race between caretaker boss Andy King and former gaffer Colin Calderwood. At the time of writing it seems that the struggling League Two club are no closer to reaching a conclusion, much to the frustration of Cobblers supporters who have been patiently waiting for an appointment since Aidy Boothroyd’s sacking on December 21.

So far Chairman David Cardoza has refused to be rushed, preferring to keep his cards close to his chest. However, there were developments on Monday when it was revealed that King will remain in charge of first-team affairs for the foreseeable future, as he bids to enhance his chances of securing the job on a permanent basis.

The former Swindon Town boss has to date overseen one win, one draw and two defeats in the dugout, with the Cobblers still marooned at the bottom of the Football League - five points adrift of safety. Last weekend King was looking to boost his chances by leading his side to a valuable victory against relegation rivals Torquay, but was left crushed after the game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

King was briefly installed as the favourite for the vacancy on Christmas Day, although his odds almost instantly drifted from 13/8 to 5/1 and then as high as 25/1. Since January 5 the 57-year-old has been a leading candidate, although he has recently been challenged at the top of the market by Norwich City assistant Calderwood who, between Friday and Monday, was the odds-on favourite. As things stand King can be backed at 4/7 with Sky Bet, whereas Calderwood just behind at 6/4. Meanwhile Iain Dowie is a 10/1 outsider.
