Seagulls Sack Slade

Is Peter Taylor set to return to the Withdean Stadium?Brighton & Hove Albion has sacked manager Russell Slade after just eight months and 31 games in charge at The Withdean Stadium. Slade was appointed in March and steered The Seagulls clear of relegation, however, just three wins from the first 15 games of the season and sitting just one place above the League One relegation zone was enough for the Albion board to wield the axe on the former Yeovil, Grimbsy, Scarborough and Notts County boss.

Martin Hinshelwood has been appointed caretaker manager for what will be his third stint in temporary charge of Brighton and is likely to take charge for Saturday's FA Cup fist round clash away to Wycombe Wanderers. However, it is not thought that Hinshelwood is in the running for the permanent position, with the former Crystal Palace midfielder likely to resume his role as Director of Football, with a new boss likely to be appointed sooner rather than later.

Early rumours we are hearing suggest that Peter Taylor, the man who guided the Seagulls to their last promotion (League One Championship) in 2002 could be making a return to the Withdean Stadium following his recent sacking at Wycombe in October.
