Cambridge United are looking for a new manager after sacking Joe Dunne on Saturday. Here are five potential candidates for the job-

Gary Bowyer- He is looking for a route back into the game after leaving Blackpool after the first game of this season. The former Blackburn Rovers manager guided the Seasiders to promotion from League Two in 2017 and kept them up in the third tier in the last campaign.

Kevin Nolan- The 36 year-old has recently turned down the AFC Wimbledon job. He was sacked by Notts County at the end of August after a poor run of form, despite getting them into the Play-Offs in League Two last season.

Daryl McMahon- He spent time as a player at Cambridge as well as other spells with the likes of Leyton Orient, Port Vale and Stevenage. The 36 year-old is available after leaving Ebbsfleet United in November after three years in charge there. He got them promoted from the National League South in 2017 and then into the National League Play-Offs last season.

Mark Bonner- He has been placed in caretaker charge of the U’s. If he does well in the time that he gets then he could be considered for the full-time vacancy.

Phil Brown- The former Hull City, Preston North End, Southend United and Swindon Town boss has been available since his sacking by the Robins in November. He has experience of managing in League Two and is a decent option for Cambridge. His best achievement as a manager was guiding Hull to the Premier League in 2008.
