Next Huddersfield Town manager: Former Sheffield United and Barnsley FC

Huddersfield Town’s manager search has entered a third week as the Terriers look for their third manager of the Championship season.

Since Darren Moore was fired after conceding a stoppage-time equalizer at QPR two weeks ago, Jon Worthington has been holding down the fort excellently.

In his first game in charge on Saturday, February 3, club favorite Worthington led his Terriers to a commanding 4-0 victory over relegation rivals Sheffield Wednesday. A week later, his team led 2-0 at promotion-chasing Southampton before the heavily-resourced Saints cruised to a 5-3 victory in the second half.

The next game Huddersfield will play is on Wednesday night at John Smith’s Stadium versus Sunderland.

Because of his current performance, Worthington is now the third choice among bookmakers to become the next manager of Huddersfield Town. He has a 10/1 pricing with certain bookmakers.

Nonetheless, Michael Duff, the former Barnsley manager who guided the Reds to the League One play-off final the previous season before going on to Swansea City in the Championship and being fired less than six months later, continues to be the favorite. With no job, Duff is rated as the 4/6 favorite.

Paulo Bianco, an Italian player who is comparatively unknown, is now the second favorite at 6/4.

The Serie B manager of Modena previously worked as a coach for Juventus.

Paul Heckingbottom, who left Sheffield United in early December and has not been employed.

Heckingbottom, a former Leeds United and Barnsley manager, is 12/1.

One up-and-coming darkhorse is Wayne Rooney (25/1) among the usual suspects, such as Gareth Ainsworth.

The former England captain is 33/1 and on the rise after going through a terrible stint at Birmingham City.

David Wagner, the former Huddersfield manager and current Norwich manager, is one person who is losing ground. He went from 16/1 to 33/1.
