Millwall begin manager search after sacking Steve Lomas

Steve LomasManagerless Millwall have started their search for a new boss after sacking Steve Lomas on Boxing Day following their 4-0 defeat at Watford. The former West Ham player failed to win over the supporters during his six months in charge at the New Den, while on-field results were below-par.

It was always going to be difficult for Lomas to endear himself to the Lions faithful following his controversial appointment during the summer. The 39-year-old got off to a poor start after failing to win any of his first six league games in charge, and despite then recording three straight victories, the club have since won only two of their 13 matches. Lomas has ultimately paid the price for problems on and off the pitch and leaves with a record of just five wins from 22 matches in charge.

Coach Neil Harris and academy director Scott Fitzgerald have been placed in temporary charge of the team, with their first game away to relegation rivals Doncaster on Sunday. Rovers, who are just a point and a place below Millwall in the table, are also on a miserable run of form having lost their last four consecutive games. The Lions are a best-priced 17/10 with Bet Victor to come away with a valuable three points, while a draw can be found at 7/4.

It is in fact Harris who has emerged as the early favourite in the Next Millwall Manager Betting Market. The 36-year-old can be found at just evens with Sky Bet, while he is currently a best-priced 2/1 with Bet Victor, however according to reports he is only interested in taking charge of the first team for the short-term. With this in mind it may be best to look elsewhere, with Neil Warnock, Dennis Wise, Gary Megson and Gianfranco Zola all featuring at this point.
