BOLTON END MEGSON REIGN

Gary Megson’s two year spell in charge of Bolton Wanderers has come to an end after being sacked by the Premier League club.

Megson, who is the third EPL manager to lose his job this season following Mark Hughes (Manchester City) and Paul Hart (Portsmouth). The club ended his tenure as manager after they threw away a two-goal lead at home to Hull City on Tuesday night to finish all square at 2 – 2.

Megson’s decision to replace striker Ivan Klasnic with midfielder Gavin McCann when the home team were leading 2-1 against the Tigers was met with a chorus of loud boos.

Hughes has been installed as the favourite to replace him with Darren Ferguson, Paul Jewell and Alan Curbishley just some of the other names who may be in the frame.

For the time being, assistant boss Chris Evans and first team coach Steve Wigley will take charge of the Trotters, who are 3rd from bottom of the table.
