Sky Bet League One club Bury could step up their search for a new manager following a heavy 3-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.
The Shakers are rock bottom of the league table after collecting just 13 points from 18 matches so far this season while the club have been without a manager since sacking former boss Lee Clark three weeks ago.
The Bury Times have recently reported that Bury chairman Stewart Day will not rush a new managerial appointment however the club could increase their search for their next boss with The Shakers five points adrift of safety in Sky Bet League One.
The man who is being heavily tipped to be appointed into the role is former Sunderland boss Simon Grayson. The 47-year-old managed just three wins in 18 matches in charge of The Black Cats before being sacked last month but is the odds-on favourite for the vacancy at Gigg Lane according to the latest odds from English Football League sponsors Sky Bet.
Grayson is as short as 1/7 to be named Bury boss and with the club facing a real threat of relegation, it would come as no surprise if they were to press on with any plans to persuade the former Sky Bet League One promotion winner to take charge of the club in the coming days.
