Next Brentford Manager Betting Wide Open

The field in the Next Brentford Manager Betting Odds could not be more open, with virtually nothing to choose between the main candidates. The leading men in the race to become the next Brentford manager are Nicky Forster, Aidy Boothroyd and Mark Warburton who are all locked on odds of 5/1 with Sky Bet, while Roberto Di Matteo and Wally Downes are just behind them at 6-1, with a host of other names in hot pursuit with odds of 10/1.

The Bees recently suffered a setback after their preferred candidate, St Johnstone boss Derek McInnes, turned the club down after announcing that he will remain in Scotland after he guided the Saints to an 8th place finish on their return to the Scotland's top tier. McInnes is incidentally still available at 10/1 to go back on his word and join Brentford this summer. However, this is considered very unlikely, and thus leaves the club with a managerial conundrum, that will take some time to be resolved as they contemplate who is best suited to take the club up a level into the Championship.

Brentford sacked manager Andy Scott at the start of February after a dismal run which had left the club winless since New Years Day and a mere two points off the League One drop zone in 19th place. Nine wins in 27 league games was nowhere near good enough and the board opted to appoint their veteran striker Nicky Forster as manager on a temporary basis. Just a month later in March this deal was extended to the end of the season. The 37-year-old has impressed during his brief spell in charge, guiding the team to the St Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final at Wembley, where they narrowly lost 1-0 to Carlisle. He also took them to a respectable 11th place finish in League One with 61 points. It is believed that the board are looking for a more experienced manager but if they cannot find one they will turn to Forster, who ended his stint in charge with a pulsating 4-4 draw with promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town.

Sky Bet currently have Brentford at 33/1 to win League One next season.
