As Jackett leaves Lions

Relegated Wolves have sacked their manager Dean Saunders as they look to address the crisis they have found themselves in this season.

Saunders joined Wolves from Doncaster in January but won just five of his 20 matches in charge which has seen the club suffer back-to-back relegations. The club Saunders left bypassed Wolves into the Championship after winning League One under Brian Flynn.

His pre-decessor Stale Solbakken only lasted 26 matches and now the Molineux club are looking for their fourth permanent manager since sacking Mick McCarthy just 14 months ago.

Meanwhile, in South London, Kenny Jackett has left Millwall after a disappointing second half of the season. 

With 27 games played, the Lions occupied a playoff spot, but a shocking run since the turn of the year, coinciding with the loss of star striker Chris Wood, saw them only avoid relegation by two points.

Jackett had been with Millwall since November 2007 and oversaw the promotion to the Championship,along with an FA Cup semi-final appearance at Wembley this season.
