A flurry of bets overnight have seen former Rochdale Manager Keith Hill become the bookies favourite to replace Dean Keates as Walsall manager.

Hill was 14/1 on Thursday with SkyBet but a flurry of bets has seen his odds drop to 2/1.

Hill tried to get his Rochdale side to play football the right way and like Rochdale he will find himself on a very tight budget at Walsall.

During his time at Rochdale he won promotion twice from League 2 and established them as a comfortable League 1 side.

His one and only spell away from Rochdale came at Barnsley where he lost forty-one games out of seventy-five.

He was dismissed as Rochdale boss earlier this season with the side firmly in the drop zone – results have picked up and Dale now find themselves outside the relegation zone with three games remaining.

Hill is an outspoken manager and demands success, it will be interesting should he take over how he and Jeff would work together.

  • Yesterday performance against Southend was lacklustre did very little in the final third of the pitch if we had not got the penalty we would not have scored,i thought Zeli Ismail our best threat up front Andy cook struggled to get in the game Blackett-Taylor showed at times some good work but seems scared of jumping for a header also tends to give up to easily needs to show more fight in his play. Chris Dunn did well in goal and kept us in the game with two very good saves we need a lot more improvement against Wycombe to get the three points we desperately need let’s get performance like they gave against Barnsley show some fight passion and ability
