Having been turned down by Martin O'Neill, Leicester City are now targeting Huddersfield's Lee Clark as their next manager. Clark has chalked up a 41-game unbeaten run and is now the bookies' favourite, although Kevin Keegan is still in the frame for one last come back.
Clark seems open to an approach. He said, 'I want to manage at the highest level but I know nothing at the moment and (owner) Dean Hoyle will be the first person I talk to if that changes. It will not easy to walk away from [the club].'
Although Johnnie Jackson's free kick created Charlton's third goal yesterday, it appears that Danny Hollands headed it over the line.
Mick Wadsworth commented after the game, 'Hartlepool has always been a tough town, a tough team, a tough area.' Indeed: yesterday it was named as one of the top five towns in the country for anti-social behaviour.
