Terriers Begin Search For New Manager

Steven Pressley bookies favourite.

Huddersfield Town are beginning their search for a new manager after the shock departure of Mark Robins.

He parted company with the club after their 4-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

Steven Pressley and Billy Davies are the bookies favourites to take over.

In a statement, Terriers chairman Dean Hoyle commented: "Mark has put his all into the job over the past 16 months and has made a big contribution to the Club.

“He arrived at the Club at a difficult time and immediately impacted to keep us in the Championship.

“Mark’s approach to this has been refreshing. He has always put the Club before himself and worked tirelessly on the training ground to change our way of playing and we have seen that come to fruition.

“Mark will be someone that I personally, and we as a Club, will always remain in contact with.”

Assistant Manager Steve Thompson and First Team Coach Steve Eyre will take charge of training for the time being, assisted by the existing First Team technical staff.
