According to the bookies there is nothing in it as Tim Sherwood and Malky Mackay seemingly battle it out to become the new manager of Crystal Palace.

There was a huge surge of support for Sherwood yesterday morning in the betting as he plunged to as low as 1-10 on at one point.

That had dislodged early market leader Mackay out to as long as 9-2, but this morning it is virtually neck and neck again as Steve Parish ponders who will be unveiled as Tony Pulis’ successor.

Sherwood is best priced 5-6 with William Hill and Bet Victor, while Mackay is closely breathing down his neck as low as even money with a trio of firms.

The next best priced candidate you can get is Steve Clarke (12-1) and Martin Jol (12-1) so now we are asking you to vote in our online poll (above) who you would like to see as the next man in charge of the Eagles.
