Malky Mackay remains narrow favourite to take control at West Brom

Malky MackayWest Brom need to make a managerial appointment sooner rather than later, according to caretaker boss Keith Downing. The popular 65-year-old, who has steadied the ship with one win and three draws from his three games in charge, insists that he doesn’t want the job permanently but has told the club that they need to find Steve Clarke’s successor as quickly as possible, or avoid missing out in the transfer window.

Downing can still be backed at a best-priced 12/1 with Stan James, but will be more focused with leading the Baggies through to the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, in what could prove to be his final game in charge. The Midlands club hosts fellow top-flight strugglers Crystal Palace at the Hawthorns in the eagerly anticipated third round of the famous competition, and can be backed at 4/5 with Coral to come out on top.

The out-of-work Malky Mackay remains the narrow favourite in the Next West Brom Manager Market to make a rapid return to the dugout. The Scot was controversially sacked by Cardiff City last week but has come out of the whole saga with his integrity and managerial record intact, and can currently be found at a decent looking 2/1 with Betfred to take charge at the Hawthorns.

Elsewhere the former Real Valladolid and Osasuna boss Jose Luis Mendilibar is still right in the mix for the vacancy at 3/1. The 52-year-old has been unemployed since September but is believed to be keen to come and test himself in the Premier League. Meanwhile Celtic manager Neil Lennon is priced at 14/1, while former favourite Pepe Mel has drifted to 16/1.
