Newcastle next manager odds: Howe slashed to favourite to replace Bruce, Lampard just ahead of Mourinho and Shearer

EDDIE HOWE has been cut to replace Steve Bruce as the next Newcastle manager.

Howe, out of work since leaving Bournemouth, saw his price shift 6/1 to 2/1 on Sunday and is currently 6/4 favourite.

Newcastle were held 1-1 by Leeds on Friday night and are still without a win this season.

The Toon have two points from five games and sit third bottom in the table.

Howe leads the market to replace Bruce with Betfair ahead of Graeme Jones (5/2), Chris Wilder 4/1, Roberto Martinez 10/1 and Frank Lampard 12/1.

Jose Mourinho is at 14/1 – joint with Alan Shearer, Andre Villas-Boas and Mark Hughes.

Bruce’s position is coming under pressure and the fans are unhappy with the situation at the club.

And he admits things are tough in the camp.

He said: "It is very, very difficult – it is the demand of a big club.

"We are a big club with huge support.

"And there is a frustration and we want Newcastle competing in the top half of the division.

"At the moment we're not.

"So we have to accept the criticism that comes our way and get on with it, not let it affect you.

"And keep trying to do your job the best you can."

However with Mike Ashley in charge a sacking is unlikely but with Howe’s price shifting dramatically over the weekend something could be afoot.
