Former Scarborough FC manager Russell Slade has been sacked by Coventry City.

The Sky Blues sit at the bottom of League One and are odds on favourites to be relegated to the Football League's bottom division.

Slade, who guided the McCain Stadium-based outfit to an FA Cup fourth round clash with Chelsea, has been at a number of clubs since leaving Boro in 2004 including Cardiff City, Charlton and Yeovil.

He has been replaced at the Ricoh Arena by Mark Robins.
