Phil Brown In The Running For Fleetwood Town Job

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 06 December 2012, 09:58

Phil Brown has emerged as one of the early favourites to replace Micky Mellon at Fleetwood Town. The League Two club are on the search for a new manager after they surprisingly parted company with Mellon on Saturday following a third consecutive defeat. Brown is currently the second favourite in the Next Fleetwood Town Manager Odds at 13/5 with Sky Bet, behind frontrunner Graham Alexander who leads the way with odds of 1/4.

The new manager will have big boots to fill as Mellon had led the Cod Army to two promotions in four years - up from the Conference North into the Football League. His departure was a shock to many considering the bright start the Lancashire club had enjoyed to the current season, with the 40-year-old leaving them seventh in the table. It is definitely an attractive job, with Paddy Power handing the club odds of 6/4 to earn promotion and 10/1 to win the league title.

Brown, a former Preston, Hull and Derby boss has been out-of-work for nearly a year following his departure from Preston. The 53-year-old was recently linked with a return to the dugout with League One side Hartlepool, however talks broke down, with the club then opting to appoint John Hughes. Elsewhere, according to reports, Blackpool assistant manager Steve Thompson has also been attracting attention and is an outside bet at 22/1.

Fleetwood welcome promotion rivals Southend to Highbury Stadium on Saturday, with the hosts just one point behind their opponents. Paddy Power have handed Fleetwood odds of 17/10, while Southend go into the match as the 6/4 favourites, with a draw available at 9/4.
