Scunthorpe United have sacked Stuart McCall, as announced by their official club website yesterday. Here are five potential candidates to replace him-

Andy Dawson- The 40-year-old, who worked under McCall, will take caretaker charge of the club until the end of the season. He has been in this position before. Dawson played over 200 games for the Iron as a player as well as other spells at Nottingham Forest as a youngster and ten years at Hull City.

Steve Evans- The former Boston United, Crawley Town, Rotherham United, Leeds United and Mansfield Town boss is in the hunt for a new job after getting sacked by League One side Peterborough United. He is an option for Scunthorpe.

Paul Hurst- He has been available since he was sacked by Championship side Ipswich Town in October after short stint there. The 44-year-old did impressive jobs at both Grimsby Town and Shrewsbury Town prior to his move to Portman Road last summer and deserves another chance.

Darrell Clarke- Another potential option for Scunthorpe at the end of the season. He was manager of Bristol Rovers for four years and guided the Pirates to back-to-back promotions from the Conference (now National League) to League One during his time there.

Kevin Nolan- Scunthorpe could take a look at the former Premier League midfielder. Nolan has managed Leyton Orient and Notts County in the past and has been out of management for a while now.
