Sky Bet League One club Gillingham are understood to be considering the future of manager Ady Pennock according to Kent Online.

The Kent club avoided relegation to the fourth tier courtesy of a goalless draw with Northampton Town at Sixfields on the final day of the season and chairman Paul Scally is now thought to be considering whether Gills boss Pennock should continue as manager next season.

Just one point separated Gillingham and 21st placed Port Vale in the league table and the club’s final league position was a world away from their targeted push for the top six. Pennock was appointed manager of Gillingham in January however results have not improved and the former defender has won just 19.05% of his 21 matches in charge.

Should chairman Scally decide that Pennock is not the man to take The Gills forward, it has been reported that Kenny Jackett could replace him in the Priestfield hot seat. The 55-year-old has been out of work since leaving Sky Bet Championship club Rotherham United in November after just 39 days in charge.

Jackett has previously won promotion from Sky Bet League One on two occasions, guiding Millwall to Play Off glory in 2009/2010 and Wolverhampton Wanderers to the league title in 2013/2014.
