Chesterfield part ways with Danny Wilsonby Jack Kitson / 08 January 2017, 12:29Tweet
Chesterfield have become the second Football League club to make a managerial change in the space of an hour after parting ways with Danny Wilson.
Earlier today (Sunday) League Two outfit Crewe split with Steve Davis after five years, and now League One side Chesterfield have followed suit.
Chesterfield's decision comes after Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Bradford City which left the struggling Spireites down in the relegation zone (22nd) on goal difference.
Wilson lasted just over a year in the dugout.
Last season Wilson kept the club in the third-tier with an 18th place finish, however he came under-pressure earlier this term following a nine game winless run in all competitions, eigtht of which were defeats.
However, Wilson survived and went on to lead his side to five wins in eight, but a subsequent run of four defeats in six (during which they have failed to score in over 400minutes of football) has resulted in the club making a change in the dugout.
Ritchie Humphreys has been placed in caretaker charge of the club, with goalkeeper coach Matt Duke acting as his assistant.
Dean Holden has emerged as the hot favourite in the Next Chesterfield Manager Market, with the likes of Neil Redfearn, Ritchie Humphreys, and David Flitcroft also in the mix.
