Championship: Wigan sack manager Leam Richardson
Championship side Wigan Athletic have sacked manager Leam Richardson after a poor run of form.
"However, having looked at the recent run of form that is challenging the team's status as a Championship club, the board have made the decision to make a change.
"The club would like to place on record it's thanks to Leam for his efforts and dedication throughout his time at the football club, none more so than during the period of administration and his instinctive reaction that helped save the life of Charlie Wyke.
"A much-loved individual and someone who Latics fans will always hold in very high regard, Leam will always be welcomed back at the DW."
Wigan will face Blackpool, the side above them in the table, on Saturday.
