Championship 'sack race' includes Birmingham City, Preston, Stoke, Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry managers - gallery

Seven managers in the Championship have already lost their jobs this season, but who will be the next?

The Championship is about to enter its 17th week of the 2023/24 campaign and seven managers have already lost their posts in dugouts up and down the nation.

Some have left by mutual consent, whereas others have been sacked by their clubs. Matt Taylor was the latest to go, departing Rotherham United with the Millers struggling down in 22nd position. And he's not the only recent casualty.

Neil Warnock said farewell to Huddersfield Town, Xisco Munoz was relieved of his duties at Sheffield Wednesday, John Eustace left Birmingham City, and Nigel Pearson ended his stay at Bristol City. Elsewhere, Gary Rowett went through the exit doors at Millwall and Gareth Ainsworth left the gates of Queens Park Rangers.

Already a whole host of moves, then, but still not even close to the total of 22 managerial casualties seen throughout 2022/23. There are some bosses on thin ice currently, though, with some sides failing to meet their lofty expectations and others struggling in the relegation fight.

But which gaffers are the most likely to depart next? There aren't any official betting figures on the market but data experts BETsiE have run computer simulations to work out the probabilities. Click through the pages for the 13 managers said to be at risk, from the least likely to go to the most.
