BETTING has been suspended on one candidate in line for the vacant manager's job at Wrexham AFC.

Mark Hudson appears to be on the verge of becoming Wrexham's next permanent manager as BetVictor closed betting on him getting the job following a dramatic shortening of odds.

Nigel Clough and Jim Gannon were the initial leading contenders for the role, with high profile names such as Casey Stoney and Mark Hughes also being linked to the vacancy at The Racecourse.

However, Mark Hudson then emerged as the favourite for the job and the former Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City player had remained in pole position as his odds were stable at 3/1.

However, the Englishman's odds began to dramatically shorten today, and as a result betting on the market has now been completely suspended by BetVictor, as it is anticipated that Hudson will soon be appointed by Wrexham's owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
