The vacant manager's position at Championship strugglers Scunthorpe United has produced a short-list of four names for the post.
The Iron parted company with Ian Baraclough earlier this month, and Tony Daws and Ian Turnbull are currently in caretaker charge.
The Iron have received 40 applicants for the post.
"We have drawn up a short-list and there are four people on it," Iron chairman Steve Wharton told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
"The process of carrying out interviews is now ongoing."
Scunthorpe are currently five points adrift of safety.
