Neil Harris the 4/1 favourite to take over at Cambridge United

Betting is now open on who will be the next Cambridge United manager with bookmakers offering odds following the sacking of Mark Bonner on Wednesday.

Neil Harris is the 4/1 betting favourite to replace Bonner next with OLBG looking at the full list of potential runners for the job.

Steve Cotterill is the second favourite in the betting odds with the decision to replace Bonner as the man to lead the club seemingly a tough one according to owner Paul Barry’s comments in The U’s statement.

“Mark Bonner will rightly go down as one of the most important people in the history of Cambridge United Football Club,” said Barry following the sacking.

Early odds by BetVictor suggest there’s a 20% chance that Harris takes over Cambridge, nearly two months after he was sacked as the manager of Gillingham.

Mark Bonner was sacked after The U’s were beaten 3-0 at home to Lincoln on Tuesday

Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to Lincoln City was the final nail in the coffin of Bonner’s near four-year spell in charge of the club with Cambridge sliding down to 18th in the table.

Cambridge-born Bonner only signed a new long-term deal back in September but the U’s board decided that now was the right time to pull the trigger and sack him as manager.

The U’s have won 1 of their past 13 league matches and that poor form ultimately led to a change needed at the top with Barry Corr and Kevin Betsy becoming the interim coaches.

Betting is also available around who will be relegated from League One at the end of the season with Cambridge now sitting as sixth favourites in the betting market to go down at 2/1.

Cheltenham are the heavy favourites to go down with bookmakers putting them odds-on at 1/7 to be relegated followed by Carlisle and Carlisle who are 4/9 and evens respectively.

Whoever takes over at Cambridge will have a tough task on their hands to make sure that they aren’t fully drawn into the relegation battle this season with the festive spell arguably the busiest time of the campaign.
