Next Charlton Athletic Manager Odds

Charlton Athletic are on the search for a new manager following the sacking of Dean Holden in the aftermath of Saturday’s 2-1 loss away at Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium in League One.

The Addicks are without a win since their opening-day victory against newly-promoted Leyton Orient at The Valley where George Dobson scored the only goal of the game.

Following Holden’s departure from Charlton, Danny Senda and Glyn Shimmel have also left the club, with ex-Addicks defender Jason Pearce being left as Interim Manager of the club.

The 43-year-old Mancunian’s record as Charlton manager was slightly underwhelming having taken charge of the club 32 times, winning 12, drawing five times and losing 15 matches, equating to a win percentage of 37.5%.

Dave Challinor Odds: 4/5

Stockport County manager Dave Challinor has emerged as the new favourite for the job at Charlton, with the 47-year-old already showing plenty of promise throughout his managerial career.

Challinor’s coaching career started off at Colwyn Bay back in 2010/11 when he led the Welsh outfit to the Northern Premier League Premier Division play-offs in 2011 before leaving to join AFC Fylde where he memorably earned three promotions and an FA Trophy win during his eight years at Mill Farm.

Since departing the Coasters in October 2019, Challinor has had further successes, having won the National League play-offs with Hartlepool United in 2021 before winning the National League title with Stockport County in 2021/22.

Danny Cowley Odds: 4/1

Former Portsmouth manager Danny Cowley currently stands at 4/1 to become the Addicks next manager, seeing his odds increase from 7/4.

The 44-year-old lost his job at Fratton Park last January having failed to win a league game for over two months, leaving Pompey in 12th at the time, Cowley’s overall managerial record at Portsmouth finished as 42 wins and 27 draws from 97 matches, equating to a 43.3% win percentage.

Cowley previously managed Huddersfield Town in the Championship for a total of 40 matches, winning 13 and drawing 11, consolidating the Terriers' place in the division during the 2019/20 season.

His three-year spell at Lincoln City will be remembered as his best managerial spell to date, having won two promotions from the National League (2016/17) and League Two (2018/19) by winning each division, on top of this, the Imps also won the EFL Trophy in 2018, while being the first side in over 100 years to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup outside of the Football League in the 2016/17 season.

Michael Appleton Odds: 4/1

Michael Appleton’s odds have been slashed from 12/1 to 4/1 for the job at The Valley.

The 47-year-old has had previous managerial experiences at the likes of Portsmouth and Blackpool in turbulent situations for both clubs, as well as at Blackburn between January and March of 2013 where he oversaw 15 games in charge, winning just four of them.

Since then, Appleton has had a decent career, managing to win 78 of 173 matches in charge of Oxford United in a three-year spell between July 2014 and June 2017, where he managed to earn promotion to League One in his second season at the club.

After this spell at Oxford, Appleton joined Premier League outfit Leicester City to be Craig Shakespeare’s assistant manager, before the latter was sacked, meaning that he had two games as caretaker manager of the Foxes, of which they won both. Appleton would then join West Brom having started his coaching career there as well as the latter years of his playing career.

Appleton’s last managerial job was at Sincil Bank with Lincoln, winning 55 of his 143 matches, following a difficult third season in charge. The 46-year-old will feel as though things could have gone much differently, having led them to the play-off final in the 2020/21 campaign, where his side was beaten by Blackpool at Wembley.

Lee Johnson Odds: 12/1

Despite being sacked by Hibernian at the weekend, Lee Johnson has been heavily linked with Charlton’s manager job.

The 42-year-old has managed at five clubs during his 10-year managerial career, having started off with Oldham Athletic, before joining the likes of Barnsley, Bristol City, Sunderland and Hibs.

Johnson’s longest managerial spell came during his time at Bristol City between February 2016 and July 2020 where he helped develop the club from a relegation candidate in the Championship to a side that could compete for the play-offs while playing an attractive brand of football.

Since then, Johnson has managed to win the EFL Trophy with Sunderland in the 2020/21 season before being sacked by Hibs on 27th August after overseeing his side lose all of their first three matches of the 2023/24 Scottish Premiership season.

Lee Bowyer Odds: 16/1

Another ex-Charlton Athletic manager is on this shortlist in the shape of Lee Bowyer.

The former Leeds United midfielder has plenty of managerial experience, as the 45-year-old managed the Addicks between March 2018 and 2021, winning 64 and drawing 37 of his matches in charge, leading them to promotion to the Championship back in 2018/18 via the play-offs.

Following his spell at Charlton, Bowyer decided to return to his former club Birmingham City in March 2021, where he had a less successful spell with the then cash-strapped club. Bowyer oversaw just 17 wins in 59 matches until the end of his reign in July.

Mark Bonner Odds: 20/1

Cambridge United manager Mark Bonner has been linked with the vacancy at The Valley having impressed so far at the Abbey Stadium.

The 37-year-old has been manager of Cambridge since January 2020, overseeing 180 matches, winning 73 times and drawing 36, equating to a 40.56% win percentage. During his time at the club, Bonner notably managed to guide United to promotion from League Two in 2020/21 while helping the club to consolidate themselves in League One with 14th and 20th-placed finishes on a restrictive budget.

Steve Cotterill Odds: 20/1

Former Shrewsbury Town manager Steve Cotterill has emerged as one of the favourites for the job at Charlton.

The 59-year-old oversaw a 12th-placed finish with the Shrews during the 2022/23 season and has a decent record at League One level, having guided Bristol City to the League One title and Football League Trophy back in 2014/15.

Cotterill is known for offering sides stability, having managed Cheltenham Town between 1997 and 2002, overseeing two promotions and an EFL Trophy win, while also being held in high regard at Burnley for his spell at Turf Moor between 2004 and 2007 in what were tough times for the Turf Moor side.

Karl Robinson Odds: 20/1

Karl Robinson has also been linked with the vacant manager's job at Charlton despite having previously managed the Addicks between November 2016 and March 2018.

During his time at The Valley, Charlton won just 27 of 74 matches and left by mutual consent following a fallout with then-owner Roland Duchatelet. Having been hamstrung with a lack of funding for players in his first spell at the club, could Robinson be a great success if he were to be given a second chance under different circumstances?

The 42-year-old has had two lengthy spells in management, having coached MK Dons between 2010 and 2016, overseeing promotion from League One in 2014/15, while his other notable managerial job came with Oxford United, coaching the U’s 274 times, winning 110, equating to a 40.1% win percentage.

Jason Pearce Odds: 25/1

Ex-Charlton and Bournemouth defender has taken over as Interim Manager following the sacking of Holden and will be keen to grab this opportunity should he be able to manage any senior games for the club.

The 35-year-old made a total of 162 first-team league appearances for Athletic between 2016 and 2022 and has been an Under 18s Academy Coach since.

Darren Moore Odds: 33/1

Former Sheffield Wednesday coach Darren Moore has entered the running to become Charlton Athletic’s next manager.

The 49-year-old memorably managed to guide the Owls to promotion via the League One play-offs last season and has tended to do a decent job at every club he has managed so far.

Moore initially started off as manager of West Bromwich Albion and came close to pulling off what would’ve arguably been the greatest Premier League survival of all time with the Baggies having gone unbeaten in his first month as a manager in April 2018, culminating in the Jamaican winning the Manager of the Month award. The ex-West Brom defender managed the Baggies 48 times, winning 23 and drawing 13, ending up with a win percentage of 47.9%.

In between his spells at West Brom and Wednesday, Moore also managed Doncaster Rovers in League One between July 2019 and March 2021, taking charge of Donny 78 times, winning 35 and drawing 15, equating to a respectable win percentage of 44.9% before being acquired by the Owls.
