Championship Managers fail to save their jobs

It’s all change in The Championship as two managers lost their jobs yesterday. You could argue that both sackings were slightly surprising with Paul Clement and Neil Redfearn being shown the exit door.

Paul Clement who was in his first season in charge of Derby County and had The Rams in 5th place was sacked after Chairman Mel Morris said that Derby “had not made enough progress” under Clement’s stewardship.

Derby have gone seven league games without a win and it seems as if it was unlucky number seven for Clement. His reign as Derby boss didn’t get off to the best start as they failed to win any of their first 6 matches but then there was signs that Derby were moving in the right direction, unfortunately the momentum has halted over the last few weeks and that was the end for the ex Real Madrid Assistant.

It was also the end for Neil Redfearn at Rotherham after only four months in the job, It wasn’t the most successful reign as The Millers won only five of 21 games under Redfearn, losing 14, leaving them 22nd in the Championship table.

They haven’t won in their last four league matches and it was defeat at fellow strugglers Bolton which proved to be the last straw for Redfearn. Nicky Eaden who only was appointed as Redfearn’s assistant 5 days ago has yet to have his future clarified
