Sky Sports sources have reported that the race for the manager`s seat at St Andrews is now between Chris Hughton and Roberto Di Matteo.
Blues are looking to appoint a new manager very soon and it will be one or the other of the above after both candidates have been seen again this week. Initially there was six names on the shortlist.
Gianfranco Zola who was also a tip to take the job is no longer in the running.
Whoever gets the job will have to get stuck in straight away as he will have to put together a side that has the capability of getting the club back in the Premier League next season.
