Paul Dickov leaves Oldham Athletic

Oldham Athletic earlier today (Sunday) confirmed that manager Paul Dickov has stepped aside as manager of the League One club.

Paul DickovHis exit from the side follows the Latics 3-1 away defeat on Saturday against Walsall leaving the club 20th in League with 27 points from 30 points and just one point and one place above the relegation zone. However it has not been a completely unsuccessful season for Dickov at Oldham as he has taken the club to the fifth round of the FA Cup. The journey has seen them beat Premier League side Liverpool in the fourth round and also taking out Championship side Nottingham Forest in the third.

Dickov was in his first managerial role when he took over the club from June of 2010 and he was in his third season in charge of the Boundary Park club and even though he has guided the side to the fifth round stage of the FA Cup this season his chairman Simon Corney said in an interview on the BBC on January 28th that despite the FA Cup result Dickov was still "under pressure" to retain his job.

The question Oldham fans will be asking is who will come into manage the side? With the prospect of making it through to the quarter final stage of the FA Cup should they manage to beat Everton in the next round their will be a massive incentive for Corney to have someone in place quickly. The betting market for the next Oldham manager is already open and the frontrunner in this early stage is Phil Brown who has been out of work since he was sacked by Preston North End at the tail end of 2011.
