Tony Mowbray departed the Ricoh Arena on Wednesday night for the final time, with the former West Brom manager calling time on his stint with Coventry City.

It means that the League One club are searching for a permanent replacement, with the Sky Blues sitting bottom of the table and facing a scrap against relegation this season.

Steve Cotterill has bags of managerial experience and Sky Bet make the former Bristol City manager their 6/5 favourite to take over at the Ricoh, with Cotterill having done a tremendous job at Ashton Gate when getting the Robins promoted two seasons ago.

Coventry head to Port Vale on Saturday without a permanent manager and four of their five away games have ended in defeat this season. Perhaps Steven Pressley is interested in a return to the Midlands club and the out-of-work manager is a 6/4 chance to replace Mowbray.

Pressley has most recently had a spell with Fleetwood Town although the Scot resigned from his position in July this year. He was linked with the Huddersfield Town job while at Coventry and could be tempted to a return.

Steve Evans is another name that has been linked to the vacant position, with Sky Bet going 11/2 about the former Rotherham and Leeds United boss, with Sean O’Driscoll another experienced manager and he’s priced at 11/1.

Kenny Jackett is a 14/1 shot although any prospective manager will want to have confidence that money is available to strengthen the squad, with Coventry having managed to accrue just six points from ten matches this term.
