Mike Jackson became the fifth Football League manager to leave his post this season - and this month (October) - after Tranmere Rovers pulled the plug on the partnership on Saturday evening.
Three wins from 13 games in all competitions gave Jackson a win rate of just 23.1% in what was his second stint in the dugout following a 19-game spell at Shrewsbury Town back in 2014.
Tranmere, who were relegated from League One last season, will now look to appoint their third manager in the space of just four months.
But, who will they turn to in a bid to rejuvenate their season following their stuttering start?
Graham Alexander, sacked by fellow League Two outfit Salford City earlier in October, is one of the early names in the frame, according to the next Tranmere Rovers manager odds.
In truth, Alexander’s pretty unfortunate to be out of a job given the creditable work he’d done at Salford, who were unbeaten in the league this season under his watch. However, with Tranmere joining Mansfield in the hunt for a new boss, he could potentially return to the division sooner than expected.
Former Bolton boss Keith Hill and ex-Colchester United gaffer John McGreal are also out-of-work, and will both no doubt be watching the latest developments at Tranmere with a degree of interest.
McGreal in particular is likely to receive plenty of attention considering he played for Tranmere; where he spent nine years and racked up over 200 appearances.
In terms of his managerial experience, McGreal spent four years at the helm of Colchester, who reached the League Two play-off semi-finals last season, while his side shocked Crystal Palace and Tottenham en-route to reaching the quarter-finals of the League Cup.
Paul Cook has been linked with every EFL job that’s cropped up this season, and this latest vacancy is no different. While it would be a surprise to see the ex-Wigan boss take a job in League Two, like McGreal he did play for Tranmere back in the 1990s. Could he now return as manager?
Elsewhere, there are a whole host of names in the betting, including the likes of Gary Bowyer, Simon Grayson, Dino Maamria, Nigel Adkins, Danny Cowley and Kevin Nolan.
