Ian Holloway backed to return to a former club

The 56-year-old has been out of management for a year.

Ian Holloway is odds-on in places to return to Plymouth Argyle, 12 years after leaving the Pilgrims.

‘Ollie’ was sacked by QPR in May 2018 but could return to the team he managed in the Championship for 18 months.

75% of bets have gone on Holloway to take the Plymouth job, and he is a best price of 2/1 to take the hotseat following Derek Adams’ departure.

He’s way clear of Darrell Clarke, who is next in the betting at 6/1.

Gary Johnson has just got Torquay back to the National League and completes the top three at 8/1.

Plymouth have one game remaining to save their League One status, and must beat Scunthorpe while hoping for results to fall their way elsewhere. They are 13/10 to win their first game in nine.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Holloway promised to take the Green Army to the Premier League when he joined as manager in 2006, and since referred to his decision to leave Home Park as the worst of his life.

They may be a fair way off the top tier now, but it looks like 'Ollie' may have the chance to push them forward again.”
