Coral make Rowett favourite to replace Clark

Gary Rowett has been installed as the 4-1 favourite with bookmaker Coral to be the next permanent Birmingham manager after Lee Clark was sacked earlier this afternoon. In an open betting market, Owen Coyle is second best at 5-1, while Brian McDermott and Chris Hughton are both quoted at 6-1.

“The new early front runner for the Birmingham in our eyes is Gary Rowett as the current Burton man featured for the Blues in his playing days and he has done a really good job with the Brewers in recent years,” said Coral’s John Hill.
