Alan Knill on verge of Scunthorpe United exit early today
Speculation is mounting manager Alan Knill is this morning on the verge of being sacked by Scunthorpe United.
Saturday's 3-0 defeat at the MK Dons is likely to have been the 48-year-old's final game in charge of the Iron, marking the end of a difficult 18 months in charge at Glanford Park.
That defeat, Scunthorpe's fifth in the last seven games, left the club third bottom in League One, four points from safety.
Knill has won just 14 of his 69 league games during his tenure - a win percentage of 20.2 per cent which is the second lowest in the club's history.
Father's Day will soon be upon us, so Don't Forget....

At several different stages of Saturday's game fans called for his head, making his position largely untenable, though Knill told the Telegraph after the match that he would not resign.
Former manager Brian Laws is tipped to replace Knill at Glanford Park - six years after he left the Iron to take charge at Sheffield Wednesday.
The club have yet to make any official announcement.
