Darren Ferguson leaves Preston North End

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 29 December 2010, 17:22

Preston North End have parted company with manager Darren Ferguson twelve months to the day that they sacked his predecessor, Alan Irvine. Ferguson leaves PNE at the foot of the Championship, five points from safety turning in to the new year after the club suffered its 13th defeat of the season at home to Middlesbrough.

Ferguson, who was sacked by Peterborough United in November of last year arrived at Preston in January and guided the Deepdale club to safety. However, a dismal season thus far has seen the Lilywhites back in a relegation battle and Chairman Maurice Lindsay together with the club's owner, Sir Trevor Hemmings, obviously see the club's battle for survival in the hands of another manager after Darren, the son of Machester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, has managed just 13 victories in his 49 games at the helm.

The early rumour about the person expected to replace Ferguson Jr is Paul Jewell, who has a close relationship with Chairman Lindsay following his time at Wigan Athletic. After being out of work for two years, Jewell is believed to be ready to return the management and a job in the Championship is sure to appeal. Another name favoured by Preston fans is that of Michael Appleton, a first team coach at West Brom and former Preston player but whether a first time appointment would be favoured by the board in the current circumstances remains to be seen.
