Fleetwood Town are on the hunt for their third different manager of the season after sacking Lee Johnson.

The 42-year-old was only given the job in September following Scott Brown’s departure but Fleetwood are currently nine games without a win in all competitions – seven of which have been defeats – and languish down in 23rd in League One. They were beaten 2-0 by Bolton on Friday evening and also lost 3-0 at Sixfields earlier in the month.

“Fleetwood Town can confirm Lee Johnson has left the club with immediate effect,” said the club in a short statement released on Saturday.

“Assistant manager Darren Way and first-team coach Phil Jevons will also depart – everyone at the club would like to place on record our thanks to Lee, Darren, and Phil for their hard work and professionalism during their time at the club.

"The club will issue a further update on the first team staff in due course.”
