As Bolton's search for a new manager begins, we look at how the bookmakers view the situation at Macron Stadium - as Phil Brown emerges as the early favourite.

Wanderers' hunt for a sixth boss in nine years began on Tuesday, following the mutual parting with Neil Lennon, and Brown immediately topped the list of many, including supporters who voted in a Burnden Aces Twitter poll.

While the man in charge at League One high-flyers Southend United is the hot favourite to take the reigns next season, Sky Bet, title sponsors of the Football League, list several alternatives, with a number of those having previous experience of Bolton as players and, interestingly, manager.
