Russell Slade enters the betting to become the next Rotherham managerby Jack Kitson / 09 December 2016, 09:48Tweet
Steven Pressley is no longer the odds-on favourite to replace Kenny Jackett at Rotherham after drifting slightly out to 5/4, although he still leads the way in the betting.
The former Coventry and Fleetwood manager emerged as the red-hot frontrunner for the Championship post on Monday, dropping to as short as 1/3, before moving out to odds-against on Thursday night.
This may come as a relief to many Rotherham fans, with Pressley receiving just 35% of the vote in a poll we ran earlier in the week asking whether they would like to see the 43-year-old as their new gaffer.

Former Millers boss Ronnie Moore remains bang in the mix at 5/1, as does caretaker manager Paul Warne.
However, there has been a significant move from Russell Slade, who has been slashed from 18/1 to 4/1 to make a swift return to the dugout with the south Yorkshire club.
Slade suffered the sack at Charlton last month less than six months after taking charge of the club, as he became the sixth boss to leave The Valley since March 2014.
The 56-year-old has spent over 20 years in management with the likes of Cardiff, Leyton, Brighton and Yeovil, accumulating nearly 800 games in the dugout.
