Plymouth Sack Paul Sturrockby Richard Smith / 10 December 2009, 15:18Tweet
The writing has been on the wall for some time for Paul Sturrock as Plymouth are in deep trouble in second last place at the foot of the Championship table after they have lost their last three matches. Plymouth are currently three point behind Roy Keane's Ipswich who is also under extreme pressure after so much was expected of him at the start of the season.
Paul Mariner has taken over on a temporary basis and has been at the club for last two months working with Paul Sturrock which suggests that this move has been planned for a while now as it is reported that Sturrock is now to take up a business-support role at the club.
Chairman Sir Roy Gardner said: "The board has decided to make this move following the continuing poor set of results. "We are convinced we have the capability to improve our performance and remain in the Championship."
