Hull City manager Steve Bruce will be cautiously looking over his shoulder following some dreadful results of late and he now sits second in the 'Next Premier League manager to leave' betting market at just 3/1.
The pressure is now mounting for Bruce with his Tigers side sitting in the relegation zone following a poor run of form which has seen them lose their last three matches whilst conceding six goals and scoring none.
Indeed, with just four top-flight wins to their name so far this term, Hull look destined to suffer relegation to the Championship at the end of the season unless results dramatically improve.
The latest outing for the Tigers saw them mauled by West Ham to the tune of 3-0 and following this result, Bruce’s odds were slashed from 11/2 to 3/1 to be the next Premier League managerial casualty.
Indeed, things couldn’t look much bleaker for a man who was recently a possibility for the vacant Newcastle United position but who is now a rank outsider at 40/1.
The favourite for the axe in the top flight remains Harry Redknapp, his QPR side sitting level on points with Hull City in the relegation zone and the fact that he has the backing of owner Tony Fernandes will likely give Redknapp no comfort whatsoever.
Nevertheless, despite the west London side losing to Manchester United at the weekend, Redknapp’s price has remained steady during the same time that Steve Bruce’s price was slashed.
