Fall-out from the Championship relegation battle has included the departures of managers Dean Saunders and Kenny Jackett.

Ex-Doncaster boss Saunders has been sacked by Wolves, after they went down. and Jackett has resigned from Millwall after the FA Cup semi-finalists ended up only two points above the bottom three.

The Lions lost five of their last seven league games - a run begun by the Owls’ 2-1 win at the New Den last month.

Saunders followed in the steps of Mick McCarthy’s assistant, Terry Connor, and ex-Cologne manager Stale Solbakken in failing to turn fortunes around at Molineux, after he quit Rovers in January.

Wolves won only five out of 20 games under Saunders and lost five of their last six.

Jackett, who signed Mark Beevers from the Owls, managed Millwall for six years and was the sixth longest serving manager, behind Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger, David Moyes, Tony Pulis and Exeter’s Paul Tisdale.

He said the time was right for him to take on a new challenge and for a new manager to come in.
