Three managers in our region are feeling the heat right now.
Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United have mustered just two league wins between them in their opening 23 matches. Some fans are becoming restless and the pressure is mounting on David Flitcroft, Dave Jones and David Weir to stop the rot.
None of the trio have won on the road and they are all struggling to keep clean sheets.
The Reds and Owls suffered their heaviest losses of the season on Saturday while Preston North End condemned the Blades to their fifth successive league defeat.
All three are scrapping at the wrong end of their respective divisions. When will the pain end?
