Slade makes Huish Park exit

16 February 2009 01:30
Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade has left the League One club with immediate effect. Slade departs despite the Glovers having won their last four games, having clinched a fine 3-1 victory at Peterborough United at the weekend. Former Grimsby Town boss Slade had said after that success: "We knew this was going to be a hard game, because Peterborough are a very attacking side with very good forward players for this level of football. "But we coped well with them generally. We fancied nicking a goal from a set-piece, so to pinch two in quick succession was very important. "The crucial spell for me was the five minutes leading up to half-time when they had a couple of chances to get a goal back. "If they had done that they would have had their tails up and put us under more pressure than they actually did. "I was delighted with the win and with our defensive display." Slade took charge at Huish Park in the summer of 2006, having spent the previous two years as boss at Grimsby.
