Highly recommended: Many of these Leeds fans think former boss will be ideal for Notts County



Notts County are without a manager after the sacking of Harry Kewell last week.

The Magpies lost at the weekend, too, to compound a miserable few days for the League Two side.

Several names have been linked with the vacant position at the Meadow Lane; even a few surprise candidates have become clear contenders for the job.

Having had a strong, successful spell at Barnsley, before a nightmare run as Leeds boss, Paul Heckingbottom is reportedly in the frame for the job with Notts.

According to journalist Alan Nixon, Heckingbottom is a man under consideration, with the League Two club holding talks with the 41-year-old about the vacancy.

The out-of-work manager at present made his name during his time with the Tykes in League One, getting them up to the second tier via the play-offs.

And he could well do a job in the fourth tier if given a chance.

With that said, we asked the Leeds supporters, if, after his poor spell in charge, did they think he’d be a good appointment for Notts County.

From the results in the vote, it’s clear to see that the majority of the supporters polled, believed that Heckingbottom would do an excellent job at the League Two strugglers if he were to be appointed.

Despite an underwhelming time in the Championship with Leeds and Barnsley before that, 65 per cent of the United supporters who voted, feel that in the lower leagues, the 41-year-old will be back to his best.

Conversely, a high proportion felt he would not do a good job at the Magpies, with 35 per cent believing that it a position that would not be a good one for the former Leeds man to take.

Heckingbottom is currently the third favourite with Sky Bet for the post, and it remains to be seen if the job is going to be his, or not.

But from the collated result, it’s clear that the most of the Leeds supporters who voted in the poll are backing their former boss to be a solid appointment for Notts County, should it become a reality.
