Fleetwood Town sit 15th in League One and will be looking to restructure and rebuild ahead of next season. One of these steps could well include a new manager option according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter (below).
Fleetwood have already changed manager once this current campaign with the north-west coast side getting rid of former incumbent Uwe Rosler in February after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Doncaster Rovers.
The Cod Army took the opportunity to replace former Leeds United boss Rosler with a former Leeds United player in John Sheridan, the former Oldham Athletic boss coming in on a short-term deal until the end of the season.
Sheridan has guided Fleetwood from a relegation-threatened 20th in the League One table to 15th, a position in the league that awards them a certain degree of breathing space. Whilst acknowledging that Sheridan has performed well enough to be in consideration for the long-term position at the Highbury Stadium, Nixon also indicates that Fleetwood attention might be elsewhere.
That attention, says The Sun’s chief football writer, is directed at Fleetwood’s league rivals Bradford City and their boss Simon Grayson. The former Leeds United manager has been at the Bantams for a similar amount of time as Sheridan has at Fleetwood and is looking to repair City’s fortunes as a play-off challenging side.
Grayson has a proven track record of getting sides out of League One and into the Sky Bet Championship having overseen promotions for Blackpool, Huddersfield Town, Preston North End and Leeds United.
