After an 11th league defeat of the season, Neil Cox’s time at Scunthorpe United was finally up after spending over a year as the club’s manager.

Cox started his playing career at the Iron before going on to play for the likes of Aston Villa and Watford, and after being an assistant to Neal Ardley at both AFC Wimbledon and Notts County he jumped at the chance to return to Glanford Park as the man in charge last summer.

Last season was a struggle though – under Cox the club were always at the bottom end of the League Two table and they finished the campaign in 21st position and what followed was a massive spate of player departures.

Have Scunthorpe United had a higher or lower average attendance compared to these 23 sides this season?

Last weekend saw Scunthorpe win just their second match of the season when defeating Crawley Town, but their good work was undone on Saturday as they lost away at fellow strugglers Colchester United.

They were 2-0 down after just 14 minutes and despite a late consolation through Harry Davis, Scunthorpe couldn’t rescue a point and in the end Cox has paid the price by losing his job – let’s look at how Scunny fans are reacting to the news.
