Leyton Orient's Russell Slade In Trouble Following Poor Startby Steve Claridge / 24 August 2011, 09:10Tweet
Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade is the bookmakers' favourite for the chop following the club's dreadful start to the new season. The O's have yet to record a single point in any of their first four league games and as a result Slade is the 7/4 favourite in the Next League One Manager To Be Sacked Odds.
Orient started the season with a 1-0 loss at Walsall. This was followed by consecutive home defeats to Tranmere and Wycombe, and then last weekend they were thrashed 5-0 at Brentford. Slade will now have to motivate his players and make them believe they can turn this season around, otherwise both himself and the club could be in serious trouble. The 50-year-old was appointed manager back in April 2010 and immediately saved the club from relegation. After finishing 7th in League One last campaign the O's were expected to push on and make a promotion push this season. However, due to their miserbale start, which has left them rock-bottom and pointless, their immediate focus is to stay in the league. They are currently 5/2 with Paddy Power to be relegated at the end of the season.
Leyton Orient will look to register their first points on the board when they play Carlisle at the Matchroom Stadium on Saturday. Paddy Power have handed Orient odds of 11/8 to win, with Carlisle priced at 7/4 and a draw at 12/5.
