*Odds correct as of November 16, 2022

Luton Town are searching for a new manager following Nathan Jones’ decision to leave Kenilworth Road for the second time. The Welshman previously upped sticks to take charge of Stoke City, and he has now decided to replace Ralph Hasenhüttl after Southampton made an approach for someone who has spun gold out of straw at the Bedfordshire club.

There has been some significant movement in the past couple of days. Rob Edwards was manager of Luton's arch-rivals Watford at the beginning of the season, although his time at Vicarage Road was brief. He now appears to be on the verge of joining the Hatters according to the latest betting odds. Jones has left Luton in rude health, with the Hatters sitting 10th in the Championship table, and there are sure to be lots of interested parties when it comes to replacing him with a number of names linked at the best football betting sites

Meanwhile, Neil Critchley, Mark Bonner and Stephen Robinson are other names in the frame on betting apps, with Luton looking for someone who can continue Jones’ excellent work at the club after they made the Championship play-offs last season.

Rob Edwards Could Be Set to Swap Watford for Luton

When Rob Edwards was appointed as manager at Watford Football Club in the summer, there was a feeling the Hornets had done away with making stop-gap appointments following another relegation from the Premier League. However, the 39-year-old lasted just 11 games before getting the sack.

Having previously impressed at Forest Green Rovers and steered them to promotion from League Two last season, Edwards furthered his ambitions by taking charge of the Hornets only to last a matter of weeks.

Edwards still has a strong reputation following his exploits with Forest Green last term, and it stands to follow that he might be interested in taking charge at Luton in the Championship, with the Hatters currently sitting in the top half of the table. The odds now suggest that he is close to landing the job on a permanent basis.

Neil Critchley Could Be Set for Championship Return

Perhaps Luton Town will enquire about the availability of Neil Critchley, who is another free agent looking for the right opportunity to return to football coaching. The 44-year-old has impressed in the Championship on a modest budget before.

Critchley steered Blackpool to promotion from League One and then kept the Tangerines in the Championship before deciding to join Steven Gerrard’s coaching staff at Aston Villa. He recently left that post after the former was sacked at the Midlands club, although his stock remains high.

Critchley previously cut his teeth at Liverpool FC when working with Jurgen Klopp, and he was successful in his roles with the under-18 and under-23 teams at Melwood. It’s perfectly feasible that he will be considered for the Luton job.

Robinson Now Among Luton Manager Favourites

Stephen Robinson has recently leapt to the head of the Next Luton Town manager betting market. The 47-year-old is the current manager of St Mirren and has faired well with the Scottish Premiership, although it appears that Luton Town are now considering him as a potential candidate.

The Northern Irishman started his managerial career in charge of Oldham Athletic between 2016-17 before a longer stint at Motherwell between 2017-20. He was then in charge at Morecambe between 2021-22 before returning north of the border to preside over St Mirren.

Robinson has long been touted as a potential Northern Ireland manager but might feel as though he needs to fulfil some club ambitions first. As a player, he enjoyed a mass of games for AFC Bournemouth, although the fact that he also had a long playing spell for Luton Town between 2002-08 marks him out as a potential candidate. There were 185 appearances in that time.

Ainsworth, Bonner and Wilder Next in the Luton Town Betting

Gareth Ainsworth has been manager of Wycombe Wanderers since 2012, although he’s among the betting favourites to replace Jones at Luton. However, the 49-year-old has such a strong affinity with the Chairboys that it’s hard to see him considering a switch at this point in his career.

Mark Bonner is slightly different. The manager of Cambridge United might feel as though he’s taken the U’s as far as he can, having steered them into League One two seasons ago, and they are now punching above their weight on a relatively modest budget.

Chris Wilder is also among the names on the football betting shortlist, and perhaps Luton Town are a club where he can restore his reputation following a short spell at Middlesbrough. Wilder has previously steered Sheffield United to promotion to the Premier League and might relish the opportunity to get back into the game.

Schumacher Attracting Lots of Attention at Plymouth

Luton Town will be casting the net far and wide to find the right candidate to replace Nathan Jones. Perhaps they will approach Plymouth Argyle to speak with Steven Schumacher considering the 38-year-old is pulling up trees with the Pilgrims in League One this season.

The Devon side have been romping away at the top of the table, having earned 41 points from their first 17 matches, and they have scored 36 goals already. At the time of writing, Plymouth have a seven-point cushion over third-placed Sheffield Wednesday and Schumacher has provided the Midas touch at Home Park.

The big question might be whether Schumacher considers the Luton ship as one worth jumping on to. It’s arguable that Plymouth are the bigger club out of the pair, and there’s a strong chance that Argyle will be playing in the same division as the Hatters next term, but the bookies' odds suggest he could be a candidate.
