Alan Knill has been sacked as manager of npower League One side Scunthorpe and will be replaced by Brian Laws.

Following the weekend defeat against MK Dons - the club's ninth loss in 15 league games this season - the board opted to remove Knill from his post.

The 48-year-old former Iron player won just 16 of his 78 games in charge of the club since he replaced Ian Baraclough in March 2011.
