The former Ostersunds and Notts County manager was appointed last May to steer Rovers through their debut season in the third tier, but won just five of his 28 league games to prompt owner and chairman Dale Vince to make a change. "I'm grateful to Ian for all his hard work this season, it's definitely not been easy," Vince said in a statement on the club's website. Burchnall, who managed Viking in Norway before replacing Graham Potter at Swedish side Ostersunds in 2018, led Notts County to the Vanarama National League play-offs last season before agreeing to replace Watford-bound Rob Edwards at Forest Green.
The England international produced two superb second-half saves from Southampton forward Che Adams as the Magpies secured a vital 1-0 win from a breathless Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at St Mary's. Joelinton set aside a disallowed goal and a shocking miss to claim the visitors' 73rd-minute winner, while Saints substitute Adam Armstrong had a leveller ruled out for handball following VAR intervention. Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, who warned there is still a long way to go in the tie ahead of next week's return meeting, saluted the impact of his in-form keeper, while Magpies midfielder Bruno Guimaraes went a step further.

In a battle of two of the biggest hitters in the women's game, Sabalenka seized the initiative after dropping the opening set to win 4-6 6-3 6-4 on Rod Laver Arena. A year ago, Sabalenka exited the tournament in the fourth round having served 56 double faults, and the 24-year-old's success comes after she remodelled her service action and learned to embrace a calmer mindset. "I think it's even more enjoyable, I would say, after all those tough matches," said Sabalenka, who had lost three times in slam semi-finals before making the breakthrough here.
