Plymouth Argyle Axe Carl Fletcher

Carl Fletcher has become the latest Sack Race victim after Plymouth Argyle axed him on New Year's Day following a 2-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers. An emotional Fletcher was dismissed with immediate effect after the match, which was the club's fifth game without a win. The League Two strugglers have been on a torrid run of late, winning just one of their last 15 league and cup fixtures. As a result they have dropped down to 21st in the table - just two points above the relegation zone.

Fletcher lasted just 15 months at the helm having originally taken over as caretaker manager back in September 2011 following the departure of former boss Peter Reid. Despite the club narrowly escaping the dreaded drop last season Fletcher was awarded a new one-year contract in May 2012. However, with the Pilgrims' Football League status once again under threat the club have decided a change was needed. In total the 32-year-old won 17, drew 27 and lost 26 of his 70 matches in charge as player-manager and then manager.

The Pilgrims are now looking for a manager with experience who can come in and change the club's fortunes. The Next Plymouth Manager Odds reveal that the recently sacked Keith Hill is the early favourite for the job, with the likes of Colin Lee, Lawrie Sanchez and Steve Cotterill also in the mix at this stage. Plymouth, who are priced at 4/1 with Paddy Power to get relegated, are next in action on Saturday away to high-flying Port Vale.
