Steve Evans liked with managerial return

Gillingham sacked Steve Lovell on Friday, just two games before the end of the season.

Mark Patterson was then thrust into the hot seat, albeit on a temporary basis, as the Gills sunk to a 2-0 defeat at home to Charlton the following day.

The caretaker boss, an 8/1 shot for the permanent position, will oversee the club’s final game away to Blackpool at the weekend.

The likes of ex-Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke, Jay Saunders, and Chris Powell also feature in the next Gillingham manager market, however it’s Steve Evans whose currently the scorching hot 1/4 favourite to return to management with the Gills.

Evans, a veteran of eight managerial posts spanning back to 1994, was surprisingly sacked by Peterborough back in January when the club were 6th in League One, a division he previously led Rotherham out of five years ago.

The Scot has since remained seated in the Job Centre but a summer return is now expected - he’s also a 10/1 shot for the newly opened Plymouth vacancy.

Although, earlier this month Evans did state:

“I have no interest in returning to football immediately and am still under contract at Peterborough United.”

We don’t believe him.

It’s not the first time Evans has been linked with a switch to Gillingham. During his Mansfield tenure, the club tried their luck following the departure of Ady Pennock, but were swatted away.

The Gills may just have a tad more luck this time around if they were to target the 56-year-old once again.
