Roberto Di Matteo: Favourite for West Brom job

Clarke was sacked on Saturday night after the Baggies' 1-0 defeat to Cardiff - their fourth defeat in a row which leaves them two points above the relegation zone.

Sky Sports understands West Brom do not have a successor in mind and that an appointment is not imminent.

Joint-assistant head coach Keith Downing will assume control of first-team affairs while the club searches for a successor.

That search began on Sunday with Di Matteo, who spent almost two years in charge at The Hawthorns between 2009 and 2011, the favourite at 5-2 with Sky Bet ahead of ex-Fulham boss Martin Jol (4-1).

Former Schalke boss Ralf Rangnick is 8-1 with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 10-1.

The man who oversaw the final straw as far as the West Brom board was concerned - Cardiff boss Malky Mackay - is down at 25-1.

Owen Coyle, recently sacked by Wigan, is down at 33-1 along with Ian Holloway, who left Crystal Palace earlier this season.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
