Moore sacked by Championship strugglers Huddersfield

Darren Moore has been sacked by Huddersfield after just four months in charge.

Huddersfield sit 21st in the Championship, three points above the relegation zone, with Moore leading the club to just three wins in the league since his appointment in September.

The decision comes after Huddersfield were denied victory at fellow strugglers QPR when Kenneth Paal’s late equaliser secured the hosts a valuable point.

Huddersfield’s statement read:Darren Moore has been relieved of his duties as Huddersfield Town manager.

“This decision was taken after our Sky Bet Championship draw at Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, which took Moore’s record as Town manager to three wins, 11 draws and nine defeats in all competitions.”

Huddersfield owner and chairman Kevin Nagle told the club’s website: “We have to make this decision to give us the best chance of maintaining our Sky Bet Championship status come the end of the season.

“Darren is a fantastic man, and he has worked tirelessly since taking the job back in September. I know I speak for everyone at the club in wishing him the very best for the future.

“We appointed Darren on the strength of his credentials as a manager, but it is now clear that this has not worked as we envisaged and hoped.

There have absolutely been mitigating circumstances, such as the high number of injuries that Darren has had to cope with, but we have still not seen enough on the pitch in terms of results or the direction of travel in playing style and performances.

“I believe that our current squad is capable of more, particularly on the back of the work we have carried out in this transfer window, and we’re quickly moving to identify the right person to lead them through a crucial period of the season. We hope to make that managerial appointment soon.”
