Huddersfield sack Siewert after just one win

Struggling Championship side Huddersfield Town on Friday sacked coach Jan Siewert after the German had managed to engineer just one win since taking over in January.

Siewert replaced compatriot David Wagner in the club's ultimately unsuccessful fight against relegation from the Premier League.

However, hopes of bouncing back immediately were hit again Friday with a 2-1 home defeat to Fulham.

That left Huddersfield with just one point from three league games with a midweek League Cup defeat to third-tier Lincoln adding to the gloom.

"Huddersfield Town has this evening terminated the contract of Head Coach Jan Siewert with immediate effect," said a club statement.
