Jon Brady, who is in temporary charge, has been installed as the early favourite with the bookies, but there are many names in the frame. Let's take a closer look at the runners and riders....
1. Jon Brady
Age: 46. Current status: Caretaker boss. Previous jobs: Cobblers U18s, Brackley. Odds: 11/4. Summary: Knows the club, knows the players, liked by fans and highly regarded as a coach. His inexperience might count against him.
2. Danny Cowley
Age: 42. Current status: Unemployed. Previous jobs: Lincoln, Huddersfield. Odds: 8/1. Summary: A coup if Town can get him given his brilliant work at Lincoln. Potentially unattainable though due to wage demands & higher ambitions.
