Who will replace Jan Siewert at Huddersfield Town?

Huddersfield Town have terminated the contract of head coach Jan Siewert following the club's 2-1 defeat at home to Fulham on Friday night.

The loss left the Terriers winless in four league and cup games this season, forcing the club to take action and orchestrate a change which subsequently brought an end to what was a miserable spell at the helm for Siewert, who registered only one win from 19 matches.

First-team coach Mark Hudson, who has been placed in charge while the club searches for a new manager, is the early favourite in the betting ahead of former Brighton boss Chris Hughton, ex-Stoke gaffer Gary Rowett, and the recently unemployed Sol Campbell who parted ways with Macclesfield earlier this week.

Nigel Adkins is also in the mix to become the sixth permanent Huddersfield boss in the lasst seven years, while Sam Allardyce is a 50/1 shot.

Back in January Siewert was the surprise replacement for David Wagner who departed by mutual consent with the club rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.

Siewert, the former Borussia Dortmund II manager, was unable to keep Huddersfield in the top-flight, picking up a meagre five points from 15 matches through to the end of the campaign.

Fans hoped that the club would turn over a new leaf this season have so far been left bitterly disappointed as it's been the same old story back in the Championship following a return of one point from three league games, while they were booted out of the League Cup by League One side Lincoln City.

Then, in the aftermath of Friday night's loss to Fulham, the club released a statement which confirmed the sacking of Siewert.

Huddersfield Town has this evening terminated the contract of Head Coach Jan Siewert with immediate effect.

Siewert joined the Club from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 in the Club’s ultimately unsuccessful fight against relegation from the Premier League and led the team in the first four competitive games of the new season, with his final game in charge being the Sky Bet Championship defeat to Fulham on Friday evening.

No further comment will be made this evening.
