The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By John Lyons

AF­TER just six months at the helm, Dean Saunders has been sacked by Ch­ester­field.

The Spire­ites slumped to a 4-0 de­feat at home against Swin­don Town yes­ter­day, their fourth de­feat on the spin, and are four points above the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

For­mer man­ager Paul Cook, now in charge at Portsmouth, led them to the League One play­offs last term. An in­terim man­age­ment team are set to take charge un­til a per­ma­nent ap­point­ment is made.

Chair­man Dave Allen said: “We will not be rushed into making a de­ci­sion on a new man­ager.”

Ex-Wolves boss Saunders, 51, is the sec­ond League One boss to lose his job in the last four days, fol­low­ing Tony Humes’ de­par­ture at Colch­ester.
