Northampton Town are currently in a relegation battle and looking to avoid dropping into League Two. Dean Austin is in caretaker but there could be a new manager at the helm next season. Here are five updated candidates-

Graham Alexander- He was harshly sacked by Scunthorpe United in March despite them being 5th in League One. He has previously managed Fleetwood Town as well and deserves another chance in the Football League. He is a decent option for the Cobblers.
