Oldham Athletic reportedly set to sack Stephen Robinsonby Jack Kitson / 12 January 2017, 11:55Tweet
League One basement club Oldham Athletic are set to sack manager Stephen Robinson after just six months at the helm.
According to the Oldham Evening Chronicle the club are preparing to hurl the 42-year-old out of the exit door following a dismal return of just one win from their last 12 league and cup games (in 90 minutes), while they have failed to score in their last five matches, dating back to mid-December.
In fact, the goal-shy Latics have only scored a Football League low 12 goals this term.
On top of that the rock-bottom club are currently winless in 10 league games stretching back to mid-October, leaving them three points adrift of safety.
If reports are to be believed it appears that the Greater Manchester have now lost patience with Robinson, meaning his final match in charge was Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to Mansfield in the Football League Trophy.
Robinson’s departure would mean that Oldham will remarkably be on the hunt for their seventh manager in two years.
The club will no doubt be keen to appoint a boss with experience given their precarious position at the foot of the table, with the Oldham Evening Chronicle linking former boss John Sheridan, who recently lost his job at Notts County, with a return.
