Rochdale gaffer now second favourite As the Reds begin their search for yet another new manager, the bookies are hard at work predicting odds for who will take the Oakwell hotseat. Rochdale boss Keith Hill is the new second favourite to take the job, having had his odds slashed from 12-1 to 6-1. Hill led Rochdale out of the fourth tier for the first time in 40 years and took them to 9th in League One. He is behind Danny Wilson, who led the Reds to the Premiership in 1997, and having seen his side relegated, upped sticks and made the managerial move to rivals Sheffield Wednesday. SkyBet are offering odds of 5-1 for the ex-Reds boss. Other leading candidates according to the bookies include Roberto Di Matteo (6-1) and Chris Hughton (7-1).
