Former Crystal Palace and QPR boss Neil Warnock is the heavy favourite to become the new manager of Huddersfield Town. The 74-year-old is being tipped to come out of retirement to save the Championship strugglers.

He is the odds-on frontrunner for the Terriers’ vacancy and is 1/3 on SkyBet. He is then followed by Chris Wilder at 5/1, Narcís Pèlach at 6/1 and then Charlton Athletic’s Dean Holden at 16/1.

Crystal Palace turned to Warnock back in 2007 and he guided the London club from the lower reaches of the second tier to the play-offs in his first season. However, they were beaten in the semi-finals by Bristol City.

He left Selhurst Park after three years and subsequently linked up with QPR before guiding them to promotion. The veteran then ended up returning to the Eagles whilst they were in the Premier League in 2014.

Warnock, who has overseen 1,821 games from the dugout, has also managed the likes of Sheffield United, Leeds United, Rotherham United and Cardiff City, among many others. His last role in the game came at Middlesbrough but he was dismissed in 2021.

He managed Huddersfield from 1993 to 1995 and is now being linked with a move back to West Yorkshire. They are currently joint-bottom along with Blackpool.
