Iain Dowie has expressed his interest in the managerial vacancies at Championship sides Burnley and Preston North End.
Burnley’s 2-0 defeat to Scunthorpe, which was witnessed first-hand by Sky pundit Dowie, proved to be the final game of the Brian Laws era at Turf Moor as he was sacked on Wednesday.
And within hours Darren Ferguson was given the boot by North End, having won just 13 times since becoming manager last January.
Both clubs will be looking to make quick appointments with the transfer window set to reopen, and former Hull City boss Dowie admits he would be tempted by either club.
He told Sky Sports News: You're always interested in, Burnley and Preston, clubs of that magnitude.
“It's about expectations. Darren Ferguson went in there, who did an absolutely sensational job at Peterborough, and it's just not quite worked out for him and they find themselves a little bit adrift.
“The other one, it's about the expectation of coming down from the Premier League and Brian's not been able to match that.
“It's always a terrible situation, we have all been there ourselves when you lose jobs, but of course you would be interested in jobs of that magnitude.
“I think both of them have got decent squads, Burnley perhaps the slightly stronger squad with plenty of attacking intent in it.”
