FLW understands that former Leeds United manager Dave Hockaday has been identified by Portsmouth as a candidate to succeed Andy Awford as manager.
The south coast club are on the look out for a new manager after Andy Awford departed Fratton Park, and according to FLW sources – Hockaday is among a few candidates being earmarked for the top job.
Hockaday, 57, spent a meagre 70 days in charge of Leeds United during his time there, before being sacked by Leeds’ controversial Italian owner Massimo Cellino.
The 57-year-old has taken charge of Sky Bet League One side Coventry City on a caretaker basis this season for a short while, after Steve Pressley was sacked from his role at the Ricoh Arena.
Pompey currently sit 14th position in Sky Bet League Two, in what has turned out to be a very inconsistent season for the club.
Whoever takes control of the club for next season will face a tough task as there will undoubtedly be high expectations around Fratton Park.
