Next Carlisle United manager betting - Graham Kavanagh staking strong claim

Graham Kavanagh is now the red-hot favourite to become the next permanent Carlisle United manager after steering the club to consecutive wins.

The 39-year-old Irishman, who won 16 caps for the Republic of Ireland as a combative midfielder, was put in caretaker charge after the sacking of Greg Abbott, to whom he was the assistant manager.

Carlisle had not won this season under Abbott, apart from knocking Blackburn out of the Capital One Cup on penalties, but since Kavanagh took the reins they have triumphed 1-0 at home to Sheffield United and 3-1 at Stevenage.

Several big names in football such as Peter Beardsley, Peter Schmeichel and Glenn Roeder have been linked with the job along with former Carlisle manager Paul Simpson, but now Kavanagh is long odds-on to be given the role full time.

After the win over Stevenage, he said:
"I think everyone can see I've done myself a little bit of a favour. Let's see what this week holds. 
"I've said from the outset I want the job and I think we are showing we - because it's about all the staff - are capable of doing the job. 
"At the moment we look a very good counter-attacking team and there's no shame in that, that's the way we set up.  
"But nobody will rest on their laurels. The staff have been really good at driving that and the players have bought into it.”

Next Carlisle United permanent manager best odds:

  1/3 Graham Kavanagh (Sky Bet)
12/1 Andy Preece (Sky Bet)
16/1 Danny Wilson (Sky Bet)
20/1 Steve Thompson (Stan James)
25/1 Darren Kelly (Stan James)
40/1 bar
