Cotterill emerges as the early favourite to take Blues job

| 13.06.2011

Steve Cotterill is the 5/2 favourite to take over at Birmingham City according to Ladbrokes.

Billy Davies is next at 5/1 with Dave Jones an 8/1 chance.

Next manager betting mainstay Alan Curbishley earns a 6/1 quote for the job and Nigel Clough (25/1) and Mark Hughes (28/1) the outsiders.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Cotterill is the early favourite but we expect the market to change shape before the role is filled. Curbishley is in the running again and appears to have a chance at the prices.”
