Next Huddersfield Town Manager Odds

Huddersfield Town are on the lookout for their third manager of the season having sacked both Danny Schofield and Mark Fotheringham during the 2022/23 campaign.

The latter was relieved from his duties on 8th February, following just five wins and six draws in 21 matches following his move from Hertha Berlin’s coaching staff in late September. At present, the Terriers sit 22nd in the Championship with 28 points from 29 matches.

Chris Wilder Odds: 5/4

Chris Wilder is strong favourite for the vacancy at Huddersfield, with the 55-year-old being currently out of management following his sacking by Middlesbrough back in October.

At Boro, Wilder won 18 of his 45 matches in charge at the Riverside Stadium with his record being significantly worsened following a run of two wins in his last 11 matches which left the Teesiders in the relegation zone. However, despite this setback, Wilder will be fondly remembered for times at other clubs he has managed.

Notably, Wilder took Sheffield United to the Premier League via finishing as runner-up in the Championship during the 2018/19 season, this was after winning League One with the Blades in 2016/17. On top of this, he has also managed promotions with the likes of Alfreton Town, Oxford United and Northampton Town.

Wilder is priced at 5/4 to become Huddersfield’s next manager - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Narcis Pelach Odds: 3/1

Interim Head Coach Narcis Pelach is also in the running for the role, having filled in as manager twice for the Terriers during the current campaign.

Pelach has taken charge of one match this season, which saw Huddersfield beat Cardiff City 1-0 at The John Smith’s Stadium thanks to a goal early on in the match by Jordan Rhodes. Could the 34-year-old step up to the plate again, while making the position his own again on a permanent basis?

Pelach is priced at 3/1 to be appointed as the Terriers' next manager.

Neil Warnock Odds: 4/1

Legendary EFL coach Neil Warnock also makes the shortlist of those interested in the Huddersfield Town job, as he looks to add to his impressive CV that already has a record eight promotions, while also managing 15 different clubs.

Like Wilder, Warnock’s last managerial role came at Middlesbrough between June 2020 and November 2021, where he won 29 of his 75 matches in charge, before being sacked and replaced by Wilder, while his last promotion came with Cardiff City in 2017/18, finishing as shock runners-up in the Championship.

Warnock has stated that he would be open to taking a managerial role till the end of the season and this could be ideal in order to help the Terriers avoid relegation.

Huddersfield are priced at 4/1 to appoint Warnock as their manager.

Dean Holden Odds: 8/1

Charlton Athletic manager Dean Holden is in the running to become Huddersfield’s next manager.

So far at Charlton, Holden has managed just eight matches, winning four and drawing one, seeing the Addicks rise up to 12th in the table and with an outside chance of the play-off places should they maintain their decent form.

Holden was formerly a coach at Stoke City caretaker manager, but, departed having in the aftermath of Michael O’Neill’s sacking earlier on this campaign.

Holden took charge of one game during his time at Stoke, as a caretaker manager of the club between the managerial reigns of O’Neill and Alex Neil - he won this match against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park via a 1-0 scoreline.

The 42-year-old had worked for Stoke between April 2021 and last August following his sacking as manager of Bristol City where he won 18 of his 41 matches in charge. His other previous experience in the dugout came at Oldham Athletic in 2015 where he oversaw just three wins in 15 games.

Holden is priced at 8/1 to make the switch from Charlton to Huddersfield.

Leam Richardson Odds: 10/1

Could Leam Richardson be the answer to Huddersfield’s managerial issues?

The 43-year-old was sacked by Wigan earlier on in the season and had done a good job at the DW Stadium, having saved the club from relegation in League One during 2020/21 following financial troubles, before getting the Latics promoted to the Championship last season as they won the league title.

But, following a run of six losses in seven games this season, which saw Wigan sit in the Championship’s relegation zone, Richardson was sacked to the disappointment of many Wigan fans - notably, results on the pitch haven’t improved since his departure, resulting in the sacking of Kolo Toure.

Richardson ended his time at Wigan with 49 wins and 30 draws from 117 matches across all competitions, equating to a 42% win rate.

Richardson is priced at 10/1 to take the reins at Huddersfield.

Anthony Barry Odds: 16/1

Anthony Barry is still on the lookout for his first senior managerial job despite having a promising CV.

The Liverpudlian has been a first-team coach at Chelsea since 2020, as well as recently taking up the same role with the Belgium national side. Notably, when Chelsea won the Champions League back in 2021, he was actually assistant manager to Thomas Tuchel.

Having appointed two fairly inexperienced managers in Schofield and Fortheringham, could Town be about to appoint another?

Barry is priced at 16/1 to be Huddersfield’s next managerial appointment.
