Struggling League One side Doncaster Rovers have sacked boss Richie Wellens after six months in charge.

 

The 41-year-old took over in May but won just three of his 19 league games and leaves with the club 23rd in the table and six points adrift of safety.

 

His last game in charge was Wednesday's EFL Trophy defeat by Crewe.

What's gone wrong at Donny? 

 

They were in the top six with a couple of months left to go last season under Moore; now they're 23rd and six points from safety.

 

That's a pretty drastic decline.


I think it’s safe to say the decline wasn’t down to Moore leaving…..:ph34r:

It must have had an impact last season, though.

 

They were consistently in the playoff sports under him, then collapsed to 14th after he left. That's quite a notable decline.

 

I'm not sure what's gone on since, but they've been dreadful this season.

 

I know Moore brought a lot of loan signings to the club last year. Were they dependent on that to keep them fighting at the top of the table?

They sold their best player Whiteman to Preston in January and the decline has happened since then really. 

 

Before selling Whiteman, they averaged 1.83 ppg.

After selling Whiteman but before Moore left, they averaged 1.6 ppg.

After Moore left, they averaged 0.88 ppg.

 

One seems to have had a bigger impact than the other.

The decline started before Moore left, didn't the lose 6 in a row, or least not win in six, just before he left
