Peterborough United are set to unveil their new manager at a news conference at 1200 BST on Tuesday.
Ex-Lincoln manager Keith Alexander and former Torquay boss Leroy Rosenior are among the candidates that have been interviewed for the post.

And Rosenior told BBC Sport: "The interview went well. It's a job I'd like to get because the club has a lot of potential."

Posh have been without a manager since Mark Wright was sacked in January.

Steve Bleasdale was appointed caretaker boss for nearly three months, but resigned before Peterborough's game with Macclesfield on 22 April.

Alexander is currently out of work after parting company with Lincoln at the end of the season after four years in charge at Sincil Bank. The 47-year-old was interviewed by the club over the weekend.

Rosenior, meanwhile, remains first-team coach at Shrewsbury after leaving Torquay by mutual consent in January.

The 42-year-old is keen to return to management if the right job comes along and the Peterborough hotseat is one that meets with his approval.

Former Grays boss Mark Stimson was also linked with the post but has now been appointed manager at Stevenage.
