The Football Association of Wales are set to name Gary Speed’s successor at a new conference at midday on Thursday.

The front-runners are believed to be former Wales internationals Chris Coleman and John Hartson, who have publicly expressed their interest in the role.

Chris Coleman is the more experienced of the two candidates. The 41 year old has managed Fulham, Real Sociedad, Coventry City and Greek side Larissa. Coleman left Larissa earlier this month due to financial restraints affecting the club.

John Hartson has no managerial experience, but Wales went down a similar route with Mark Hughes, who achieved relative success with the Welsh national team.
