Poyet odds cool - but he's still favourite
10:44am Thursday 21st March 2013 in Sport
Gus Poyet’s odds for the Reading job were easing slightly this morning but he remained favourite for the post – and odds-on with most bookies.
Meanwhile Albion were continuing to offer no comment on reports their manager has been in contact with the Premier League strugglers.
The Argus were told this morning that the Seagulls' chief executive Paul Barber was not available for comment at this stage.
Reading were also offering no confirmation of an approach for the Seagulls boss.
Their move for Poyet had slipped down the television and radio news agenda this morning as fans from both sides awaited the next development.
Poyet has been strongly linked with an array of top-flight jobs in the past year, most notably Wolves when they were battling against relegation last season.
But he has stayed put to guide Albion towards the Championship play-off race.
Poyet was a best price of 8/11 for the Madejski Stadium position this morning having been as short as 1/10 yesterday afternoon.
Former Southampton manager Nigel Adkins, who was thought to be a near certainty for the Reading job at one stage, remained second favourite with odds coming in to as short as 7/4.
