Huddersfield have parted company with manager Chris Powell after the Terriers recorded their sixth draw of the season.
Powell, appointed in September 2014, has overseen just three league wins this season, with Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw at Reading leaving Town 18th in the Sky Bet Championship table.
The club announced the news on Wednesday morning via their Twitter feed, saying: ‘Chris Powell has left his role as #htafc manager with immediate effect after his contract was ended; statement to follow shortly.’
Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle will now look for his fifth manager since taking over the West Yorkshire club in June 2009.
Powell becomes the fifth Championship manager to lose his job this season after the departures of Marinus Dijkhuizen (Brentford), Steve Evans (Rotherham), Uwe Rosler (Leeds) and Guy Luzon (Charlton).
Powell’s assistant Alex Dyer is also expected to depart the John Smith’s Stadium.
