Southampton sack manager Pardew

League One Southampton have dismissed manager Alan Pardew two days after their 4-0 win over Bristol Rovers.

Dean Wilkins, previously a member of Pardew's coaching staff, has been named caretaker boss and will be assisted by Under-21 coach Martin Hunter.

First-team coach Wally Downes and goalkeeping coach Stuart Murdoch have also been relieved of their duties.

Saints, who started the season as favourites to win promotion, are currently 14th in the League One table.

"The club has decided that, to achieve its well known targets, it is essential to make changes to the management," said a Southampton statement.

"We recognise that frequent changes to the football management are unlikely to assist in the winning of trophies and promotions.

"However, we are taking these steps to achieve our aims, which we share with all supporters, to get promoted this season, and secure long term stability and progress for our football operations."
