Connor out to Evens to last 10 games

William Hill now offer odds as short as 1/6 on the Molineux club being relegated

Wolves manger Terry Connor is now an Even money shot to last 10 league games as manager of Wolves, despite originally being appointed on an interim basis until the end of the season.

Betfair’s next Wolves manager betting market states that any manager appointed on an ‘interim’, ‘caretaker’ or ‘temporary’ basis must remain “in that capacity for at least 10 completed consecutive English League games” before the market will be settled. Therefore, despite Wolves naming Connor as Mick McCarthy’s successor, the Betfair market has remained open, and will stay that way until either Connor manages 10 consecutive league games or another manager is appointed on a permanent basis.

When Connor was handed the role on an interim basis until the end of the season his odds in Betfair’s market went as low as 1/10, but in the intermittent weeks, with Wolves continuing to struggle, his odds have gradually drifted and he is now out to Evens following the 5-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.

Despite earning a 2-2 draw at Newcastle in Connor’s first game in charge Wanderers have now lost their subsequent three matches by a 12-0 aggregate scoreline.

The 49-year-old, however, remains defiant that he is the man to keep the club in the Premier League.

“We've been bottom of the league before and we've managed the last two years to get above that dotted line,” said Connor.

“If we get out of it, it will be another mission accomplished.”

William Hill now offer odds as short as 1/6 on the Molineux club being relegated, and just 6/5 that they finish the season rooted to the bottom of the table.
