Could Kevin Nolan replace his own Notts County replacement at Crawley Town?

The managerial merry-go-round is now in full swing as the former Notts County manager, Kevin Nolan, emerges as a contender to replace his own replacement, Harry Kewell, at Crawley Town.

You still with us?

Notts County pulled the trigger on Nolan a week ago following a rotten start to the new season.

Kewell was then lured over as Nolan’s successor at Meadow Lane last Friday, and now Nolan is in the mix for the vacancy that’s subsequently opened up at Broadfield.

The 36-year-old, who led Notts into the League Two play-offs last season, can currently be backed at 6/1 (Bet Victor) to make an instant return to the League Two dugout.

However, it’s another out-of-work gaffer in Jay Saunders who is the early 2/1 favourite for the job.

Last week Saunders parted company with Maidstone United after a whopping seven years, during which he led the club to three promotions, from the Isthmain League up into the National League.

He’d now no doubt jump at the chance to become a Football League manager for the first time.

Other names in the frame include Jimmy Smith, Filipe Morais, Russell Slade and Gary Bowyer, who become the first managerial casualty of the current campaign after leaving his post at Blackpool last month.

Meanwhile Crawley's 2-1 defeat at Oldham over the weekend left the club 16th in the fourth-tier with seven points from six games. The loss also means that the Sussex outfit have only won three of their last 18 league games.
