Wigan Athletic Sack Malky Mackay

Malky MackayWigan Athletic have sacked Malky Mackay after less than five months in charge at the DW Stadium. The former Cardiff boss, who only replaced Uwe Rosler in November, was sent packing after Monday's 2-0 defeat to Derby County, which left the Latics eight points adrift of safety with only five matches remaining.

Mackay, who becomes the 19th Championship managerial casualty of the campaign, departs with a desperately disappointing 19 points from 24 matches at the helm.

The loss at home to the promotion-chasing Rams extended Wigan's woeful winless run at the DW Stadium to an eye-popping 18 matches, with their last league victory in front of their own fans dating back to the hazy days of August.

The defeat was also a hammer blow to the club's hopes of surviving the dreaded drop, as it left the 23rd-placed Latics, a surely insurmountable, eight points from freedom with only a handful of games remaining.

As a result the Championship strugglers are now as short as 1/10 (Sky Bet) to suffer relegation for the second time in three seasons, having previously dropped out of the Premier League back in 2012.

Wigan have made no announcement on any potential successors, with a flurry of names in the mix at this early stage in proceedings. At the time of writing the likes of Paul Jewell, Darren Ferguson, Nigel Adkins, Graeme Jones and Gary Caldwell all feature in the Next Wigan Athletic Manager Odds, so keep checking back to that particular page for all the latest odds and betting information.

  • Fulham (a)
  • Millwall (a)
