Next Walsall Manager: A New Favourite Emerges

There is a new clear favourite in the race to become Walsall's next manager.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsFollowing yet more movement in the market, there is now a runaway leader in the race to replace Michael Flynn in the dugout at Poundland Bescot Stadium.

After featuring among the runners and riders, former Watford, Sunderland, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, and Birmingham City striker Kevin Phillips is now the odds-on favourite at 4/5 to take charge over the next few weeks.

Phillips, who guided South Shields to promotion to the National League North this season, is now without a job after leaving the 1st Cloud Arena club by mutual consent on Saturday.

49-year-old Phillips, who also played for the likes of Aston Villa, Blackpool, Crystal Palace, and Leicester City over a 660+ game career, would be something of a surprise appointment as the club looks to build a side capable of battling for promotion after the last few dismal campaigns.

Former Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell remains well backed with odds of 3/1, whilst current interim boss Mat Sadler has slipped to 8/1 following Saturday's 3-2 defeat to Play-Off hopefuls, Salford City.
