Charles placed in caretaker charge of Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon have put centre-back Darius Charles in caretaker charge following head coach Mark Robinson's departure.

The Dons announced on Monday that Robinson had left by mutual consent, with the club lying 21st in League One, a point adrift of safety.

The 1-0 home loss to Cambridge two days earlier was a fifth successive defeat and extended their winless run in the league to 20 matches.

Charles, 34, is now overseeing things, supported by Rob Tuvey, Ashley Bayes and James Oliver-Pearce, ahead of Saturday's trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

Wimbledon interim chair Mick Buckley said: "Darius has a big, positive personality, great playing experience and we are extremely grateful that he has agreed to take on this role.

"It is our intention to bring in an experienced manager to work with the team for the rest of the season. We are in discussion with some already and we will bring you more news as soon as we possibly can."
