Martin Allen was born in Reading on 14 August 1965. He played more than 100 games as a midfielder for both Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United before finishing his playing career with Portsmouth and Southend United in 1998.
   Five years later in March 2003 he took his first job in management at
Conference side Barnet, leaving the following March to over from Wally Downes at Second Division side Brentford in March 2004. He had a good run at the club, saving them from relegation to the Third Division in what remained of the 2003–04 season. In the 2004–05 and 2005–06 seasons he took Brentford to the play-offs with fourth and third-place finishes respectively.
   Allen then dropped down a level to manage Milton Keynes Dons for the 2006–07 season in League Two, taking them to the play-offs, but losing in the semi-finals to Shrewsbury Town.
   In May 2007, Allen became the new manager at Championship side Leicester City, after Leicester and the Dons negotiated a compensation package. He was replaced at MK by Paul Ince
