MIKE JACK­SON was sacked as man­ager of Tran­mere af­ter a fourth de­feat in five games.

Adam Phillips’ penalty con­signed the hosts to an­other de­feat.

Chair­man Mark Palios said: “De­spite the fact this is a sea­son which has thrown up chal­lenges that no man­ager has had to face be­fore, I have re­gret­tably come to the con­clu­sion that it is right for the club to make a change of man­ager.

More­cambe boss Derek Adams said: “It should have been three or four.”

PAUL SC­HOLES has chal­lenged for­ward Ash Hunter to im­prove his goalscor­ing this sea­son.

James Wilson and Hunter scored as Salford beat Sc­holes’ for­mer side and boy­hood club Old­ham. “I’ve said to him (Hunter) he should be scor­ing 14 or 15 goals,” Salford in­terim man­ager Sc­holes said.

Old­ham boss Harry Kewell said: “We just didn’t hit the tar­get and if you don’t hit the tar­get you can’t score a goal.”
