Former Doncaster Rovers manager in the mix to replace Nick Daws at Scunthorpe United

Scunthorpe United are on the hunt for a new manager after the club opted to part ways with Nick Daws just four League games into the new season.

Daws was named Scunthorpe manager on a permanent basis in May following a spell in caretaker charge following the departure of Graham Alexander.

However, one win from the club’s opening four League One fixtures - including Wednesday’s heavy 5-0 defeat at home to Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town - means Daws has become the third EFL managerial casualty of the campaign.

As a result Scunthorpe have now started the search for their third manager in the space of only five months, and fifth in four years.

Among the early favourites to replace Daws is the former Doncaster Rovers gaffer Darren Ferguson who surprisingly left the Yorkshire club back in June after nearly three seasons at the helm.

During his time in charge Ferguson led Rovers up to League Two, while he previously won back-to-back promotions with Peterborough, from the fourth-tier up to the Championship.

The out-of-work trio of Paul Heckingbottom, Simon Grayson and Steve Cotterill are also in the mix at this early stage in the process.

Andy Dawson, 14/1, has taken over the first team for Saturday’s clash against high-flying Burnley, while the ex Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer has also been linked.

In a statement, Scunthorpe said:

Scunthorpe United have parted company with manager Nick Daws.

We’d like to wish Nick all the best going forward, and thank him for his efforts while with the Iron.

Andy Dawson will take charge of the team against Barnsley on Saturday.
