Walsall have sacked manager Jon Whitney after two years in charge at the Banks's Stadium.

Walsall are 14th in the table, six points above the relegation places, having lost four times in five games.

Whitney, who first arrived at Walsall as physi­ot­he­rapist in 2003, ends a 15-year association with the club.

Coach Ian Sharps takes temporary charge of first-team affairs, assisted by the vastly experienced John Ward, the club's professional development coach.
