Huddersfield sack Wadsworth

Huddersfield have sacked manager Mick Wadsworth.

Former Bournemouth and Barnsley manager Mel Machin has taken over as caretaker manager.

Huddersfield are rock-bottom of Division Two, having taken just one point from their last five games.

Wadsworth was in charge at the McAlpine Stadium for less than a year, having been appointed in July 2002 after Lou Macari was sacked.

The cash-strapped Terriers attempted to sack Wadsworth earlier in the season but no pay-off could be agreed due to the club's financial problems and he was reinstated.

Machin had been assisting Wadsworth on an advisory basis.

Former Carlisle boss Wadsworth faced a difficult task in the face of Huddersfield's financial problems.

The cash-strapped Terriers's players applied to the High Court to place the club in adminstration after they were not paid.
