Sky Bet League One side Doncaster Rovers have sacked their manager Paul Dickov following a poor start to the League One season.
A statement from chairmen David Blunt read: ” The Board are ambitious for a top six finish and that is, and will remain our aim.The club will now seek applications for the post on a permanent basis. The club will not rush into making any decision, the recruitment process will be thorough and we will ensure that we appoint the strongest candidate for the position”
“From today Rob Jones will take charge of first team affairs on a temporary basis. The club has full confidence in Rob as we now look forward to a tough game against Walsall this weekend. The Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Dickov for his efforts on and off the pitch, and wish him well for the future.”
Dickov was appointed by Doncaster Rovers in May 2013 following their promotion to the Championship, but the club suffered an immediate relegation back to League One at the end of the 2013/14 season, after a final day 1-0 defeat at Leicester City.
Doncaster find themselves in 17th place with six points from their first six League One games, which has forced the board to give the former Oldham Athletic manager his P45.
