Rotherham United boss Alan Stubbs in danger of the axe as slide continues

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 17 October 2016, 10:13

Time is running out for Alan Stubbs at rock-bottom Rotherham following a fifth consecutive Championship defeat. Stubbs has notably struggled since switching Scotland's second-tier for England's equivalent, winning only one of his opening dozen games at the helm, and that sole victory stretches way back to 20th August.

So far three Championship managers have lost their jobs - Roberto Di Matteo, Paul Trollope and most recently Nigel Pearson - but Stubbs is now in real danger of becoming the next victim of the sack race.

On Tuesday Stubbs takes his troops over to 6th-placed Birmingham City, who have only lost two of their opening 12 games, in stark contrast to Rotherham who have been on the wrong end of a league-high eight defeats to date, leaving the struggling club five points adrift of safety.

On top of that the error-prone Yorkshire outfit, who have leaked in a whopping 28 goals (more than any club in the top-4 tiers) are yet to register a single point on the road, losing all six of their away games.

Other second-tier managers feeling the heat include Blackburn Rovers' Owen Coyle, whose side are second-from bottom with just nine points, whereas Mick McCarthy of Ipswich Town has come under pressure following a five game winless run.
