Phil Parkinson's spell without a job may be coming to end after he was short listed for the managerial vacancy at Scunthorpe. His main rival is Danny Wilson who recently left Swindon. Less favoured short listed candidates are Kilmarnock's Mixu Paatelainen and Bury's Alan Knill.
Parkinson is thought to have already been interviewed. It will be difficult for Scunny to avoid relegation with visits to Norwich and QPR coming up. However, if the club is relegated, Parkinson with his 'impressive' record in League 1 is thought to be the man to lead the yo-yo club straight back up again. [What are they on in Scunthorpe?]
So it could be a return to The Valley for Phil Parkinson next year.
