Micky Barron Favourite To Replace Neale Cooper At Hartlepool United

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 25 October 2012, 10:19

Hartlepool have begun their search for a new manager following Neale Cooper's resignation on Wednesday. Cooper stood down after the club's miserable defeat to fellow strugglers Bury, which saw them slip to the bottom of League One. Pools have now won just the one game this season and have failed to win any of their last 11 league matches.

Reserve team coach Micky Barron has emerged as the early favourite to replace Cooper in the Next Hartlepool United Manager betting market. Barron has been placed in temporary charge of the first team for the second time in less than a year, with the 37-year-old previously installed as caretaker manager for three matches in December 2011 after the departure of former boss Mick Wadsworth. Barron made over 300 appearances for the club (many as captain) during his playing career but now could he realise his dream and become the new manager?

Other contenders at this early stage in proceedings include Brian Laws, Sean Dyche and Davey Penney. Meanwhile Phil Brown is reportedly being lined-up for the job. The former Preston, Hull and Derby boss has been linked with a number of vacancies since he was sacked by Preston last December. However, it is unknown whether he would want to join a club rooted to the foot of the table.

In the meantime Barron will be in the dugout for Pools match away to Brentford on Saturday, which was ironically the team he faced when he briefly took charge last year. Paddy Power have handed Hartlepool outside odds of 9/2 to come away with a rare win, while Brentford are the odds-on 3/5 favourites for the three points.
