Darren Moore Sacked by Huddersfield


Darren Moore has been sacked by Huddersfield after just four months in charge.

Huddersfield sit 21st in the Championship, three points above the relegation zone, with Moore leading the club to just three wins in the league since his appointment.

Moore, 49, who led Sheffield Wednesday to promotion to the Championship last season, took over from Neil Warnock at the John Smith's Stadium in September.

    Huddersfield owner and chairman Kevin Nagle said: "We have to make this decision to give us the best chance of maintaining our Sky Bet Championship status come the end of the season.


    "Darren is a fantastic man, and he has worked tirelessly since taking the job back in September. I know I speak for everyone at the club in wishing him the very best for the future.


    "We appointed Darren on the strength of his credentials as a manager, but it is now clear that this has not worked as we envisaged and hoped. 


    There have absolutely been mitigating circumstances, such as the high number of injuries that Darren has had to cope with, but we have still not seen enough on the pitch in terms of results or the direction of travel in playing style and performances.


    "I believe that our current squad is capable of more, particularly on the back of the work we have carried out in this transfer window, and we’re quickly moving to identify the right person to lead them through a crucial period of the season. 


    We hope to make that managerial appointment soon."
