Manager Gary Smith sacked by Scunthorpe United's League One rivals Stevenage
Scunthorpe United's League One rivals Stevenage have sacked their manager Gary Smith.
The decision came after the club lost 2-0 to Bury last night, which was their 14th defeat in 18 games.
One of those was a 1-0 loss against the Iron at Glanford Park last month.
Smith was appointed manager at the Lamex Stadium in January 2012.

A 4-0 home win against promotion-chasing Sheffield United on Saturday appeared to signal a revival in fortunes.
But the club's board acted after last night's defeat at Gigg Lane left them 15th in the league table.
Stevenage remain 11 points ahead of Scunthorpe, who currently occupy the final relegation place in 21st position.
