Charlton Athletic have sacked manager Phil Parkinson while first team coach Tim Breacker and assistant boss Mark Kinsella have also left the Addicks.
The 43-year-old was named permanent boss in December 2008 following the departure of Alan Pardew.
The Addicks, who were beaten 4-2 by Swindon on Monday, last won in League One against Yeovil on 20 November.
Charlton chairman Michael Slater told the club website: “Clearly improvement is needed on the field.”
Charlton were taken over by a group represented by former chief executive Peter Varney on 31 December.
Slater added: “The team has not won in the league since November and recent performances have simply not been good enough.
“Last night’s defeat convinced us as a board that change is required now we are still in the hunt for promotion, and that we must appoint a new manager to give us every chance of going up.” (BBC Sport)
Carnage. The number of sackings recently is getting out of hand and this latest one is a little bit of a surprise and the pronouncement that Charlton have not won since November 20th is a tad misleading as the Addicks have only played five league games since that date and they drew three of those!
The south London side are sitting in fifth spot for gods sake! Oh and as I type this it has also been announced that Walsall have sacked Chris Hutchings, a decision that makes a little more sense as the West Midlands side are bottom of the table.
