There are plenty of managers out there who would be ideal for clubs in League One. Here are five-

Simon Grayson- He has guided four teams, Blackpool, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town and Preston North End, to promotion to the Championship in his career. His most recent spells at Sunderland and Bradford City didn’t work out but he deserves another chance based on his track record.

Steve Cotterill- The experienced boss has been available since his sacking by Birmingham City last season. He won the League One title with Bristol City in 2015 and also won the Football League Trophy in the same campaign.

Richie Wellens- The 38-year-old got his first managerial job last season with Oldham Athletic and initially had an positive instant impact there. He was ultimately unable to keep them in League One and left the club in May. However, he is still a promising young manager and is an option for sides out there.

Brian McDermott- He has been available since May 2016 and may have drop into the third tier to get another job. McDermott, who has managed Woking, Reading and Leeds United, guided the Royals to promotion to the Premier League in 2012.

Paul Heckingbottom- He is another who may take a League One job. Heckingbottom won the Football League Trophy and the League One Play-Offs with Barnsley in 2016 before he left Oakwell for Yorkshire rivals Leeds United last season. He was harshly sacked by the Whites in the summer and has been out of work since.
