Mike Phelan short priced favourite for Wigan job

Mike PhelanMike Phelan is now the odds-on favourite with all bookmakers to venture into the management arena for the first time with Championship side Wigan Athletic. The former Man Utd assistant has been right in the mix since Owen Coyle's departure on Monday, although his odds have since been cut from 7/1 to just 8/13 with Sky Bet.

Rumours were rife that Coyle had left the DW Stadium on Sunday following the Latics' defeat at home to Derby, although the club didn't officially reveal the news until Monday. The ex-Bolton boss lasted only six months in the dugout, winning seven, drawing six and losing 10 of his 23 games in charge.

Ian HollowayWhile Phelan may currently be the short-priced frontrunner, the job is by no means his. The former Crystal Palace and Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is also in the mix at 2/1 in the betting. Holloway left the Eagles by mutual consent back in October but could now be set for a dramatic return to the dugout.

The 50-year-old has previously led both Palace and the Tangerines up to the Premier League and is now believed to be keen for a fresh challenge. Meanwhile Karl Robinson can be found at 14/1, while the likes of Paul Jewell, Graeme Jones and Roberto Di Matteo are 20/1 outsiders.

First-team coach Graham Barrow and assistant boss Sandy Stewartt will take charge of Wigan’s match at Leeds tonight (Wednesday) with the Latics priced at 2/1 with Bet Victor to come away with a valuable win that would move them to within three points of the play-off zone.
