Bookies are backing Martin Jol to continue the good work carried out by predecessors Roy Hodgson and Mark Hughes at Fulham.

William Hill reckon fifth to eighth and ninth to 12th are joint 6-4 favourites for where Fulham will finish in the Premiership next season.

Coming 13th to 17th is 11-4, relegation is 9-1 with a top four finish ranked way out at 66-1.

Spokesman Graham Sharpe said: “Jol has two difficult acts to follow after Messrs Hodgson and Hughes both did well at Fulham, but we expect to stay at Craven Cottage until at least 2013.”

Odds on Jol leaving the role: 2011 5-1, 2012 11-4, 2013 6-4, 2014 3-1, 2015 or later 7-2.

Who will finish higher? 9-2 Fulham, 1-8 Spurs.
