Leyton Orient looking for a brand new manager and Justin Edinburgh is trading at 1/3
Justin Edinburgh has now been trimmed to 1/3 to become the next manager of Leyton Orient, with the former Gillingham manager getting closer to taking over at the National League club. His aim will be to rebuild a squad which has struggled to make an impact in the division this season, with a tighter defence the priority.
Leyton Orient are searching for a new manager and it appears as though Justin Edinburgh has a fantastic chance of getting the role, with bookmaker BetVictor offering even money about the former Newport and Gillingham manager.
Edinburgh has never managed in the National League although he has plenty of experience with the above clubs along with Northampton Town, whom he left after just a few games of the current season to be replaced by Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink.
The O’s were relegated from the Football League last season and their attempted promotion charge has fallen flat on its face, although the east London club remain an attractive proposition to a potential manager, with Chris Kinnear available at 6/1.
The Dover boss has done very well at the Crabble and might be open to a career move, while John Askey is a 6/1 poke and the Macclesfield Town manager is also doing well with the Silkmen who sit proudly at the top of the table.
Jay Saunders is an 8/1 chance, with Richard Money on offer at the same odds and Orient are likely to have plenty of interest in this position, with a manager required to get the club back on its feet and attempt a big rebuilding exercise.
John Still is a 14/1 chance and the Dagenham manager has a lot of experience in the dugout, although it appears as though Edinburgh is currently in pole position.
All odds were correct at time of posting.
