Next Permanent Peterborough United Manager Odds

Peterborough United are on the look out for a new manager following the shock resignation of Darren Ferguson at London Road in the aftermath of their defeat to relegation rivals Derby County at the weekend.

Ferguson had taken charge of 150 matches as manager of Posh over three spells, managing to earn promotion with them on four separate occasions, with three of them being in League One having finished as runner-up in the third-tier last season, whilst he also managed one promotion from League Two in 2007/08. Also on the list of honours for the Scot was an EFL Trophy in 2013/14.

Grant McCann Odds: 1/3

Former Hull City and Peterborough manager Grant McCann has emerged as the early favourite for the job following Ferguson’s resignation.

McCann was sacked by the Tigers on 25th January following a change in ownership of the club. The 41-year-old Northern Irishman had led Hull back to the Championship having won the League One title last season and arguably deserved to stay at the MKM Stadium under their new ownership.

Prior to his role at Hull, he had previously managed Peterborough who he used to play for between 2010 and 2015, winning 41 of his 104 matches in charge of Posh from April 2016 up until February 2018, what must be considered about his first managerial spell at London Road is that he was new to management and has done impressive jobs elsewhere since.

McCann also did well when he was in charge of Doncaster Rovers in the 2018/19 campaign, managing a 46% win rate, seeing him get the job at Hull.

The 41-year-old is priced at 1/3 to become Peterborough’s new manager - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Neil Warnock Odds: 11/1

Legendary Football League figure Neil Warnock has also been linked with the job at Peterborough until the end of the season.

The 73-year-old was most recently manager of Middlesbrough, but, was sacked in November last year having won 29 of 75 matches in charge at the Riverside.

Warnock’s career record speaks for itself, having managed to gain eight promotions across his career, with his last one to date being at Cardiff City in the 2017/18 season with what was an unfancied side compared to the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers who he finished as runners-up to.

The most memorable spell of Warnock’s career was arguably at Sheffield United between December 1999 and May 2007 where he left after being relegated from the Premier League in the 2006/07 campaign after 388 games in charge of the Blades.

Warnock is priced at 11/1 to take charge of Peterborough.

Lee Johnson Odds: 12/1

Lee Johnson is also being considered for the vacant managerial role at Peterborough as like McCann, the 40-year-old is also without a club.

The Newmarket-born coach is regarded as a young and progressive modern manager in the Football League and will feel as though he deserved a chance until the end of the season, having been hastily sacked after the Black Cats 6-0 defeat away at Bolton Wanderers on 30th January. In his time at the Stadium of Light he had a 51% win rate from 78 games. He also won the EFL Trophy with the Wearside club in the 2020/21 campaign.

Johnson is perhaps best known for his four-year spell as manager of Bristol City, where he guided the Robins to their highest league position since the 2007/08 season in the 2018/19 campaign when the Ashton Gate club finished eighth. Prior to his time in Bristol, he also had spells at Oldham and Barnsley, leaving both sides in better shape than what he found them in.

Johnson is priced at 12/1 to take the vacant managerial position at London Road.

Steve Evans Odds: 20/1

Another former Posh manager in Steve Evans has also made the shortlist of candidates who have been linked to the managerial vacancy.

Evans, was recently sacked by League One outfit Gillingham in early January, leaving the Gills in a perilous position in the relegation zone, having seen little improvement from his side since joining in June 2019.

The Glaswegian was manager at London Road between February 2018 and January 2019, winning 21 of his 52 matches in charge of the club before being replaced by Ferguson at the helm.

Prior to his spell at Posh, Evans had earned six promotions across his career, with his last two coming in charge of Rotherham United in 2012/13 and 2013/14, leading the Millers from League Two to the Championship in just two seasons.

Evans is priced at 20/1 to replace his predecessor and become Peterborough’s next permanent manager.

Mark Bonner Odds: 25/1

Cambridge United manager Mark Bonner is also on the list of candidates to become Peterborough’s next manager.

Bonner has managed 99 games as permanent manager at the Abbey Stadium since taking charge in March 2020, winning 45 of them, seeing Cambridge earn promotion from League Two last season.

The 36-year-old is highly regarded for the job he has done at United, with Cambridge currently sitting 14th in League One in a comfortable mid-table position on a fairly tight budget compared to some of the clubs around them.

Bonner is priced at 25/1 to swap his managerial role at Cambridge United to become Peterborough United’s next manager after Ferguson.
