Chester City have today sacked manager Simon Davies following a poor run of results this season in which the Blues have only won once in the last eleven attempts.

City, who were knocked out of the FA Cup by Millwall last weekend, are 19th in League Two after winning just three out of 15 league matches.

Welshman Davies, who took over from previous boss Bobby Williamson in March, signed a two-year deal in April.

Assistant manager Wayne Allison is expected to be offered a caretaker role for Saturday’s game with Morecambe.

Chester have suffered some heavy defeats this season – losing 6-0 at Dagenham & Redbridge and 6-1 at Rochdale while also going down 5-2 against Leeds in the Carling Cup.

They did beat Barnet 5-1 but results apart from that were largely disappointing.

A number of local managers have already been linked with the post, but it remains to be seen if a new boss would be given funds to mount a survival bid in League Two.

Chester City are struggling financially with rumours suggesting that players haven’t been paid on time with attendances at the Deva Stadium dwindling week by week.
