Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade has emerged as bookies favourites to take over at Championship side Cardiff City.

The Bluebirds parted company with former manager Ole Gunnar Sojskjaer earlier in the week following a poor start to the season after relegation from the Premier League last term.

And though the O’s haven’t got off to the best start in League One, Slade shortened from 33/1 at the start of the day to odds on favourite with most bookmakers in the evening.

The 53-year-old was told following last Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat to Colchester United that his job was under threat at Brisbane Road if he did not secure victory at Notts County on Tuesday

However, despite only securing a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane, Slade remained in the job after a meeting with Italian owner and chairman Francesco Becchetti following the midweek game.

Others linked with the Cardiff City vacancy include Tony Pulis, Dave Jones, Neil Lennon and Paul Hartley.
