Wigan Athletic have sacked manager Warren Joyce.

Latics supremo David Sharpe has sacked former Manchester United coach Joyce after a disastrous spell in charge.

The young chairman acted after talking to people since the damaging home defeat to Bristol City left the club facing the drop.

Graham Barrow has been made Interim Manager for the remainder of the season.

Sharpe said: “It is unfortunate that we have made this decision but with the team in such a perilous position in the league, we need to act now because we cannot afford to fall any further behind.

“Warren was appointed with the future in mind in terms of developing players but preserving our Championship status is the absolute priority and we have a duty to do whatever gives us the best chance of doing that.”
