Ian Holloway new favourite in the Championship Sack Raceby Jack Kitson / 23 December 2014, 11:25Tweet
The Championship Sack Race has rarely ventured out of the headlines this season, with a staggering 14 managers departing so far, during what has been a frenetic four months. On Monday Sami Hyypia became the latest second-tier gaffer to leave his post after resigning from his position at struggling Brighton & Hove Albion, meaning Millwall gaffer Ian Holloway has been installed as the new 5/1 favourite for the chop, courtesy of bookmakers Bet Victor.
Who Will Win The Championship Sackrace?
The Lions are hovering dangerously above the relegation zone in 21st following a run of one win in eight games. Friday's 1-0 defeat to Bolton was the club's third consecutive home failure, something which has not gone done well with disgruntled supporters. The games are coming thick and fast at the moment, and there's every chance that the Londoners could end the year in the dreaded drop zone, with their final 2014 fixtures away to a rejuvenated Norwich, and then a visit to Reading.
Nest in the running are Kenny Jackett and Stuart Pearce who can both be backed at 8/1. Wolves slumped to five defeats on the spin from the start of November to early December, however they are since registered four points from two games. Meanwhile Forest fans are still perplexed at the club's decline, having watched in despair as their club have gone from league leaders to seven points adrift of the play-offs. Meanwhile other names to look out for include Russell Slade (10/1), Neil Redfearn (14/1) and Neil Adams (16/1).
