Notts County sack manager after 9 losses in a row

Notts County have announced that they have sacked their manager, John Sheridan, after a run of nine losses in a row which left them the club one point above the relegation zone in League 2.

Sheridan was appointed Notts County boss in May last year. However, he has lost his job after only winning just six of his 24 league games with his final match in charge of the team being a 4-0 loss to Cambridge on Monday.

During his short time at the club Sheridan was given a five-match touchline ban in December after being sent to the stand during their defeat by Wycombe.

Sheridan said after the defeat to Colchester United on 17 December that his job was under threat: "I am on the worst run I have ever had as a football manager and expect us to do a lot better. If you are not winning games there will be a problem somewhere. I have to respect that because of the run we are on there is a question mark over me".
