QPR have sacked manager John Gregory.

The Loftus Road side are rooted to the bottom of the Coca-Cola Championship following Sunday's 5-1 defeat by West Brom at The Hawthorns and are yet to win from seven games.

Chairman Gianni Paladini said in a statement on the club's official website: "The performances and results this season have not met with out expectations. The league table does not lie."

First-team coach Mick Harford has been appointed caretaker-manager and will be in charge when QPR face Colchester at Layer Road on Wednesday.
