Huddersfield sack Clark

Huddersfield Town have sacked manager Lee Clark and his coaching team, amid rumours that he is about to take over the vacant position at Leeds United.

• Clark perplexed by sacking

Huddersfield have only lost three games so far this season in League One and went on a 43-game unbeaten run under Clark that was only ended in November by Charlton.

However, despite this, the 39-year-old former Newcastle United midfielder evidently did not do enough to convince the board that the club would achieve promotion at the end of the season.

A statement on the club's website revealed the sacking and stated: "Huddersfield Town would like to place on record it's thanks to Lee and his coaching staff and wish them all the best for the future. Academy Manager Mark Lillis will take temporary charge of the first team until a new manager is appointed."

"This was a very difficult decision; one not taken lightly or in response to one result. Concerns have been raised over recent weeks," Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle said.

"Lee and his coaching staff have put their all into the job over the past three seasons and he has made a huge contribution to the Club. However with 16 matches to go we still have an opportunity to achieve promotion and we have made this change with this in mind."

Clark who quit as first-team coach at Norwich to succeed Stan Ternent at the Galpharm Stadium, led Huddersfield to the League One play-off final in May.
