Crazy! Tranmere chairman Palios defends Hill sacking on eve of promotion play-off

Tranmere Rovers have relieved Keith Hill from his first team manager duties with immediate effect.

The club are preparing for the play-offs but have made the decision to axe their boss.

Chairman Mark Palios said: “Despite success achieved on the pitch in the form of securing a place in the Play-Offs and reaching the Papa John's Trophy final, in the Play-Offs an entire season gets distilled into two or three games.

“I have to do what I think gives us the best chance of achieving promotion in those games and I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that means making the change before the semi-finals begin."

Ian Dawes will take charge for the Play-Offs and will be assisted by Andy Parkinson.
