Clark ready to take action

Sacked Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark has taken advice on his legal options after being dismissed by the League One club.

• Clark perplexed by sacking

Lee was sacked on Wednesday, along with the rest of his management team, one of the most surprising managerial casualties of the season.

ESPNsoccernet can reveal that an angry Clark has already taken the first steps in launching a claim for unfair dismissal through the courts by discussing his options with a legal team. Clark will argue that there were no grounds for the 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. They have lost only three of the previous 55 league fixtures.

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.
