Fleetwood Town appoint John Sheridan as manager
Fleetwood Town have named former Oldham Athletic boss John Sheridan as head coach on a deal until the end of the season.
Sheridan replaces Uwe Rosler who was dismissed after Saturday's 3-0 defeat by Doncaster Rovers.
Fleetwood are currently 20th in the table, only out of the bottom three on goal difference following a 2-1 loss to Portsmouth on Tuesday.
"John is exactly the sort of character we need," said chairman Andy Pilley.
"He has a proven track record of having an instant impact with clubs and we are confident that will be the case here," continued Pilley.
"We have found ourselves in a difficult position in League One and it was important we appointed someone quickly to address this."
