Brian Laws Sacked by Burnley

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 29 December 2010, 16:28

Brian Laws has been sacked as manager of Burnley after less than twelve months in charge at Turf Moor. Clarets chairman, Barry Kilby, announced that Laws had left the club on Wednesday afternoon citing that the club required "a fresh approach in order to achieve its goal of returning to the Premier League."

Laws, who was sacked by Sheffield Wednesday last December, arrived at the Lancashire club in January after previous boss, Owen Coyle, left to join Bolton Wanderers. Despite being given financial backing from the board, Burnley were relegated from the top flight but following more big money additions to the squad during the summer, the Clarets started the season as one of the favourites to get promoted. However, Burnley has struggled to make the impression that was expected of them in the Championship during the first half of the season, with just eight wins to show from their first 22 games turning in to the new year and second half of the season.

Laws was in charge at Burnley for a total of just 44 games, winning just 13 and losing nine a record that his successor must improve on if the Clarets are to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking and being just two points adrift from the play-offs, the target is surely to finish in the top six.

Early names being linked to the post include Sam Allardyce who was recently relieved of his job at Burnley's bitter rivals Blackburn, Phil Brown and Derek McInnes, manager of St Johnstone, the Scottish team from which they lured Owen Coyle in 2007, the betting for the next permanent Burnley manager is hotting up.
