Flitcroft to take charge at Championship club???

Postby Charlie Magpie » Sun Dec 30, 2012 12:04 am

Barnsley have sacked manager Keith Hill after they dropped to the foot of the Championship following a 3-1 home defeat by Blackburn Rovers.

The 43-year-old ex-Rochdale boss was in charge at Oakwell for 18 months, having succeeded Mark Robins in June 2011.

The Tykes have only won five games this season and Saturday's defeat was their seventh at Oakwell.

Hill's assistant David Flitcroft has been asked to take charge for the New Year's Day game at Peterborough United.

Flitcroft, who was also Hill's number two at Rochdale, has promised the board a response on Sunday.

Barnsley: David Flitcroft to take caretaker charge

Barnsley have confirmed that David Flitcroft will take charge of the side for Tuesday's match at Peterborough.

The Tykes, who are bottom of the Championship, sacked manager Keith Hill on Saturday after the 3-1 defeat by Blackburn Rovers.

Former Chester and Rochdale midfielder Flitcroft, 38, had worked as Hill's assistant since January 2007, first at Dale and then at Barnsley.

The club say they will comment further on the managerial situation this week.

The Oakwell side have only won five league games this season and are four points from safety.
