Swann: Time was right to sack Alexander
Scunthorpe United chairman Peter Swann has defended his decision to sack Graham Alexander, saying he could not see where the next win was coming from following the 1-1 draw with Rochdale at Glanford Park.
The Iron have won just one game since New Years Day, but are still in the play off and Swann admitted he felt the time was right to give the club the best chance of promotion. I was struggling to see where our next win was.
Swann has also confirmed interest in both Steve Cotterill and Steve McClaren as possible replacements for Graham Alexander.
Nick Daws and Andy Dawson will take charge of Scunthorpe United in the interim until a replacement is found for Graham Alexander.
Scunthorpe interim manager Nick Daws will check on the fitness of Jordan Clarke ahead of the clash with Plymouth.
Clarke was replaced after 72 minutes against Oxford in his first start since a hamstring problem.
Daws told the club's official website: "We took Jordan off because we knew we would get 60 minutes from Jordan at best. He's probably got through a little bit on adrenaline, and the advice was we needed to take him off."
Marnick Vermijl returned to the bench against Oxford after a hamstring injury of his own and can step in if needed.
