League One play-off hopefuls Scunthorpe have sacked manager Graham Alexander after eight games without a win.

A draw with strugglers Rochdale on Saturday left the Iron fifth, two points above seventh-placed Plymouth with seven games remaining.

Alexander had been manager at Scunthorpe United for two years and led them to the play-offs last season.

"The club would wish to place on record their appreciation of Graham's efforts," the club said.

Assistant manager Neil McDonald has also left the club.
