Bookies have Carsley Favourite

The bookmakers have Lee Carsley as favourite to become the next manager of Coventry City.

The Sky Blues have had over fifty applications for the job since Mark Robins walked out on Tuesday before the revelations that action that would see City's bank accounts frozen were taken by Arena Coventry Limited.

Whether this will have a bearing on who the next manager is, no-one from the club is saying. Although it is hoped that someone who can galvanise the support in the way Mark Robins did during his four months in charge rather than one of the I've been on a coaching course merchants who litter the game. 

According to the Sack Race, Carsley who on Thursday said his appointment as Caretaker was only for the short term, is 10/1 favourite.

Nicky Mellon is second favourite at 16/1 with Sky Bet having Richard Money, a man still despised for his friendship with former City Chairman Bryan Richardson also at 16/1.
