Hudson new favourite to take charge of Terriers

Mark Hudson is the new 9-4 favourite for the Huddersfield job after David Wagner left his post by mutual consent on Monday.

The Huddersfield U23s boss leads a market which features Carlos Carvalhal (6-1), Sam Allardyce (10-1) and former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic (12-1). Allardyce has seemingly, though, ruled himself out as a candidate for the John Smith's Stadium hotseat.

The Terriers are eight points from safety and are as short as 1-16 for the drop and 10-1 to stay up. Huddersfield's next game is a daunting home fixture with champions Manchester City.

Nottingham Forest have appointed club legend Martin O'Neill as their new manager after Aitor Karanka departed after just a year in the position.

Forest are ninth in the Sky Bet Championship and have shortened to 10-1 for promotion to the Premier League this season following the appointment.

Key stats
  • Man City have lost only once at home in the Premier League this season.
Expert verdict
Following their Champions League humdinger, Manchester City and Tottenham reconvene in the Premier League and the game is unlikely to be anywhere near as pulsating. With City not needing to press for early goals, they can play their usual free-flowing game and make it seven wins in nine matches against top-six opposition this season. Only one of those eight meetings so far have featured over 4.5 goals and punters should expect a narrow win for Pep Guardiola's side.
