SACKED! Darren Moore axed by West Brom

Darren Moore has been sacked by West Brom.

The Midlands club are winless in their last three games and have dropped nine points off the automatic promotion places.

First-team coach James Shan has been placed in temporary charge but a permanent replacement is expected to be appointed imminently.

Chief-executive Mark Jenkins said: “This has been an enormously difficult decision for a Club which will always hold Darren in such high regard.

“He took over at a very difficult time last season and reunited the Club, a contribution that will never be forgotten.

“But we have made it clear from the outset that everything this season was geared to making as swift a return to the Premier League as possible.

“Unfortunately Darren has not been able to engineer the consistency of form and results to convince the board that this objective would be met.

“After discussions with our owners, the difficult decision to make a change was taken. Darren's dedication over the last 12 months is not underestimated and there will always be a welcome for him at The Hawthorns.

“But we have to place the Club's best interests at the forefront of our thinking and we must do everything we can to try to deliver the promotion we have targeted."
