Barnsley sack Hill

Barnsley manager Keith Hill has been sacked after his side's 3-1 defeat to Blackburn on Saturday left the club bottom of the Championship.

• Championship review

Hill has been become increasingly under pressure of late but was given more time after the Tykes' December 22 win at Millwall.

However, a seventh home league defeat of the season against managerless Blackburn was the final straw for general manager Don Rowing, who sacked Hill straight after the game.

"Keith and his assistant Dave Flitcroft have given their all to the club and played some attractive football," Rowing said. "Keith was very disappointed but this was a decision made by the board and not by one man. It is a very sad day.

"We thank Keith for the hard work he has put in, but we have not won at home since we beat Bristol City in September and the fans have become restless and they look to us to make the decisions. The results haven't gone our way and he has paid for it.''

Barnsley are now searching for their fourth manager in three and a half years following the departure of former Blackburn defender Hill, who replaced previous boss Mark Robins in June 2011.

Rowing has refused to say who will be in charge of the team for the New Year's Day visit to Peterborough. It is understood Flitcroft has been asked to do so, but has not yet given the club his decision.
