Interim Walsall boss Jon Whitney has seen his odds fallen from 6/4 to 1/5 – to be Walsall manager for the 2016/17.

Whitney enjoyed a brief stint at the end of the season and his future is set to be decided in the coming days.

Walsall Manager Odds (SkyBet)

Jon Whitney – 1/5
Adam Chambers – 12/1
John Ward – 12/1
Mark Cooper – 12/1
Micky Mellon – 12/1
Paul Tisdale – 12/1
Sean O’Driscoll – 12/1
Steve Cotterill – 14/1
Chris Powell – 20/1
Paul Dickov – 20/1


It is hoped that if Whitney is given the role permanently then an experienced number two will be brought in to assist as many tactical decisions were left to be desired during our poor play-off showing.
