Oldham Athletic have sacked their manager Stephen Robinson.

No sooner had the Lancashire based side who are bottom of League One, dismissed Robinson, they had brought in former manager John Sheridan.

Oldham Chairman Simon Coney said to his club's website: “This is obviously a difficult decision. Stephen is a talented coach who we believed could make the transition into a successful manager.  

“Unfortunately things have not worked out for him or the club and we felt that a change needed to be made. 
“I'd like to thank Stephen for the hard work and commitment he has shown and wish him well for the future. 
"John is obviously someone we know well and we hope he can have an immediate effect on our current situation.”
