Rotherham United have become the latest club to part company with their manager. Alan Knill, who was appointed to the position in December 2005, has been released from his role as manager, with Mark Robins put into the hotseat as caretaker manager.
The Millers are eight points adrift at the foot of the table and are 13 points from safety with just 12 games left and so any such move is unlikely to save the Yorkshire side from relegation. Crippled by a 10 point deduction before the season even started due to the club moving into administration, Rotherham appeared to have clawed their way out of trouble before Christmas, climbing to a lower midtable position. But they have not won a single match since they beat Yeovil Town 3-2 on December 2nd - a run of 14 league matches and barring a miracle are heading for League Two football.
The club's official statement states that "this action was not taken lightly, but it was felt that this was the only option considering our current plight".
