Odds On Reid Leaving

"I was quite happy with the first half but the second was an absolute joke. I just hope this is a kick up the backside." said Reid.

It was The Whites fifth consecutive defeat and it has shortened the odds on Reid's departure from Elland Road with William Hill revealing that they plan to open a book on his successor at Leeds.

"It looks bleak for Reid, we're already planning to open a book on his successor, with Paul Hart likely to be favourite," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills make Reid 1/8 to be out of his job at Leeds by the end of the season and 9/2 to survive.

And they have slashed Leeds to 8/15 to be relegated and 3/1 to finish bottom of the Premiership.
