Rochdale have sacked manager Steve Eyre and his assistant Frankie Bunn.

Dale have won just four matches this term and lie two points from safety inside the npower League One relegation zone. Saturday's goalless draw with fellow strugglers Yeovil stretched the club's current poor run of form to a solitary win in 10 league matches.

Youth team manager Chris Beech has been placed in caretaker charge.

Eyre, a former youth coach at Manchester City, undertook his first managerial role at Spotland after Keith Hill's summer departure to Barnsley.

In a statement on Rochdale's official website, www.rochdaleafc.co.uk, chairman Chris Dunphy said: "This has been a very difficult decision for my fellow directors and I because Steve and Frankie are really nice people and we have enjoyed working with them.

"Unfortunately we haven't got the results we had all hoped and worked for. I genuinely want to sincerely thank Steve and Frankie for their services to Rochdale Football Club."
