Rooney backed to get two match Euro ban
William Hill have cut their odds for Wayne Rooney to be banned for two games or more following his sending off against Montenegro from 11/4 to 7/4. ‘We haven't taken any particularly hefty individual bets but the overwhelming majority of those we have taken are for an extended suspension' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills now offer 2/5 that he will be banned for just the one game.
Meanwhile, Mark Robins is the fifth contender to become favourite to succeed Steve McClaren as Forest manager with William Hil who make the former Barnsley boss 2/1 to take over, ahead of 9/4 second favourite Steve Cotterill; 5/2 Roy Keane; 7/2 Nigel Clough; 11/2 Kevin MacDonald; 9/1 John Pemberton.
‘As seems to be par for the course with so many such markets, the Forest managerial merry-go-round has been a volatile one and you wouldn't be over surprised if there were another five favourites before the issue is finally resoled' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
