Owls rivals Town part with boss Clark

Owls rivals Town part with boss Clark

Wednesday's promotion rivals Huddersfield Town have today parted company with manager Lee Clark and his backroom staff.

The news comes as a shock with the Terriers placed fourth in npower League One but with chairman Dean Hoyle seemingly keen for an improvement in form with 16 matches to go this season.

Hoyle said: 'This was a very difficult decision; one not taken lightly or in response to one result.Concerns have been raised over recent weeks.

'Lee and his coaching staff have put their all into the job over the past three seasons and he has made a huge contribution to the Club.

'However with 16 matches to go we still have an opportunity to achieve promotion and we have made this change with this in mind.'

Town lost 1-0 at home against Sheffield United last night and in turn fell four points behind the Blades, and the automatic promotion spots, having played a game more.

Have to say this has shocked me but it should only be good news for us (this season at least) as I can't see a new manager getting more out of that team than Clark did!

F*** Clarke and Huddersfield he has proved he is a arrogant horrible T*** who has achieved nothing as a manager it couldn't have happened to a nicer man. Watch us go now in the next two matches. It is clear listening to Meggo that Ryan Lowe is gonna play against Chesterfield and Rob jones is to be replaced by Llera Madine will be a bench warmer for the next two games at least

Bit of a strange one this, can't say I like the guy but really..... They've only lost three games all season and have just beat that record..... Eh? Who's the chairman at the Galpharm? Wouldn't have the initials DA would he? Haha. Ah well, doesn't concern us, we need to concentrate on our club. WTID UTO.

wasn't he was in the running for the sunderland job not that long ago? how things change quickly in football. As for Wednesday we should just concentrate on securing a play-off place and if results go our way and we find ourselves back in an automatic place then that's a bonus.
