AFC Bournemouth sack Tindall

Championship side AFC Bournemouth have sacked manager Jason Tindall after just six months as manager.

The decision was taken after Tuesday's 2-1 home defeat by Sheffield Wednesday, Tindall leaves the team sixth in the table.

Former Cherries player and assistant boss Tindall was appointed in August following the departure of Eddie Howe.

"We feel a change is needed now to give the club the best possible chance of achieving the goals clearly set out last summer," said a club statement.

Bournemouth, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, have lost four successive Championship matches and won just once in their past eight league games.

They are eight points off the automatic promotion places and 13 behind leaders Norwich City.

"Recent performances and results have fallen well below the board's expectations," the club said.
