Dowie axed by Addicks after just 15 matches
Iain Dowie's Charlton reign has lasted only 15 games after the club announced the departure of their manager.
The 41-year-old former Crystal Palace boss only took over from Alan Curbishley on a three-year deal in May but has won just two Barclays Premiership matches out of 12 this season, leaving the club bottom of the table.
Dowie, who spent the best part of £10million while in charge, did lead the Addicks to the Carling Cup quarter-final last week but it was not enough to save his job after Saturday's 3-2 league defeat at Wigan.
Charlton made the announcement on their official website this evening, issuing a short statement which read: 'The Addicks announced on Monday night that head coach Iain Dowie had left Charlton.
'The club will issue a further statement on Tuesday morning.'
