AFC Wimbledon are in the hunt for a new manager to replace Wally Downes. Here are five potential candidates for the League One side-

Glyn Hodges- He has been placed in caretaker charge of the Dons and has emerged as an early front runner for the full-time role. The experienced coach was Downes’ assistant having previously spent five years with Stoke City’s Under-23’s.

Neal Ardley- The 47-year-old spent six years as manager of Wimbledon but was sacked in November last year. He is now manager of National League side Notts County but is in the running for his former club. Would they go back to him?

Sol Campbell- The ex-Arsenal and England defender is an option. He is available after leaving his job at Macclesfield Town in August after keeping them in League Two last season. He has been linked with the vacant Southend United job recently.

Michael Duff- He has been in charge of fourth tier side Cheltenham Town since September last year and has done an impressive job with the Robins. The former Premier League defender may have clubs higher up the football pyramid looking at him in the near future.

Chris Powell- The former Charlton Athletic, Huddersfield Town and Southend United boss could be considered by Wimbledon. However, he has recently taken a job as coach for England so may be ruled out contention for the Dons already.
