Simon Grayson has today been sacked as the manager of Huddersfield Town.Grayson Sacked By Town

His assistant Glyn Snodin and coach Ian Miller have also been shown the door as the Town chairman Dean Hoyle has decided to wield the axe as the Terriers have not won in their last 12 matches.

The 43-year old did what he was brought in to do getting Town promotion via the play-offs from League One last season but having started well to life in the Championship erratic results as well as performance since November have seen Town fall down the Championship table to 18th, 7 points above the drop zone.

Dean Hoyle cited "results and performances have tailed off alarmingly" in which Grayson's position had become untenable.

Town did play some decent football at the beginning of the season and Grayson has brought in some decent players to the club whilst getting rid of some of the deadwood. After a great start to the season performances started to wane in November with our last win in the league coming against Barnsley on the 10th of that month.

Since then we've dropped down the league like a stone, individual players have not performed at all and Grayson tinkered too much with his team making some bizarre team selections at times. Players who haven't even been on the bench in weeks would suddenly be in the starting line up, we'd play a centre half at left back when our left back that he brought in over the summer was fully fit but yet not even on the bench.

He did the job he was brought in for but he wasn't the man to take the club forward.

We thank Simon for getting us promoted and we wish him well in the future.
