Dean Saunders is the early front runner for the vacant manager’s position at Chesterfield with bookmakers SkyBet.

The former Liverpool and Aston Villa forward, who was interim manager at Crawley Town when John Gregory stepped down for health reasons, is the clear favourite at 1/5.

Saunders has already wowed the crowds at the Proact this year when he entertained at one of the club’s All-Star Events sporting dinner in January, giving anecdotes on legends Brian Clough and Ron Atkinson.

He was, however, unable to keep Crawley afloat and oversaw the West Sussex side’s relegation to League Two - going down on 50 points, two behind Crewe and Colchester who both survived.
