Next Crystal Palace FC manager latest - Mick McCarthy the new favourite

Mick McCarthy is strongly linked with every Championship job that becomes available these days - and so it’s no big surprise that he is now favourite to be appointed the next permanent Crystal Palace manager.

The former Sunderland, Wolves and Republic of Ireland boss has usurped Steve Coppell as the punters’ choice to succeed Dougie Freedman, who has quit Selhurst Park to replace Owen Coyle at Bolton Wanderers.

Coppell was the original favourite for a fifth stint in charge of the Eagles but a gamble on McCarthy means he is now a best-priced 2/1 favourite for a second spell in south east London, with Millwall having been his first managerial job.

Caretaker management duo Lennie Lawrence and Curtis Fleming did their prospects no real harm or gave them a great boost either with a 1-1 draw at Barnsley on Tuesday night, while former Coventry boss Andy Thorn has been introduced to the market at a best price of 16/1.

Lawrence said of the immediate future: “We found ourselves in a situation where we were asked to take the team after Dougie's departure and we've been as professional as we can be in our preparation.

“We are just taking it day by day. We'll pitch up Thursday and see what happens.

“The decisions are for the owners to make so we'll just continue until someone tells us otherwise.”
