Bristol City next manager betting update: Five ex-Premier League bosses rival Pemberton

Bristol City

Former West Brom, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa bosses are all in the running for the Bristol City post, according to the bookies.

Bristol City are yet to name a permanent successor for Steve Cotterill, who was sacked by the club last week.

John Pemberton has stepped in as interim boss, having previously been working as assistant.

Bookmakers SkyBet have listed Pemberton as the favourite to be named as permanent manager, despite the narrow loss to Leeds United at the weekend.

He is priced at 4/7 on, but there are a number of former Premier League bosses who could be in the running if the Robins seek to appoint a big name.

Neil Warnock is second favourite at 9/5. He recently worked in the top flight with Crystal Palace, and this season had been playing an active role at QPR prior to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink being appointed.

Former Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce is third favourite at 6/1. He has been out of work since being sacked by Nottingham Forest a year ago.

Ex-West Brom boss Steve Clarke is listed at 14/1. He was fired earlier this season by Championship competitors Reading.

More speculative hires are Tim Sherwood and Garry Monk, both dismissed this campaign by Premier League sides Aston Villa and Swansea City. They are both priced by SkyBet at 16/1.
