Simon Grayson: Sacked from Huddersfield last month

Graham Westley left North End following Tuesday night's 3-1 defeat at Yeovil, leaving them just five points above the relegation zone having won just once since November.

Former Blackpool boss Grayson, who was quickly backed in from his initial price of 3/1, was sacked from his managerial position at Championship side Huddersfield last month, and has also been linked with the vacancies at Oldham and Notts County.

Sky Bet football trader Chris Spicer said: "Blackpool fans may be quick to have a pop at Grayson if he does go to their rivals at Deepdale, but we don't think that'll deter him should Preston make an approach.

"We're not convinced the positions at Oldham and Notts County appeal that much to him, but in Preston he might see a much more exciting opportunity, and the punters have been queuing up to take the bet."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
