Rotherham United axe boss Harford
Mick Harford
Rotherham United have sacked manager Mick Harford following the 2-1 home defeat by Yeovil on Saturday.

The loss made it 17 league and cup games without a victory for the League One side and leaves them in 22nd place.

Director David Veal said: "We met with Mick and informed him that we wished to relieve him of his managerial duties.

"This is a sad time for all concerned but we felt we had no other option to take. The board will be consulting over the weekend regarding a replacement."

Veal added: "For the time being the coaching staff will step up and take temporary charge.

"We would like to place on record our appreciation of Mick's efforts to turn around our playing fortunes and wish him well."
