After just 20 games: ex-Hertha coach Fotheringham fired at Huddersfield

Score average of 1.05

The former Bundesliga professional and assistant coach of Hertha BSC Mark Fotheringham has to retire after just 20 games with English second division club Huddersfield Town. After five league games without a win, the “Terriers” had slipped down to 22nd place in the relegation table. The Scot, who only took over the club at the end of September last year, averaged 1.05 points in 20 games.

“Huddersfield Town can confirm that head coach Mark Fotheringham’s contract will be terminated with immediate effect,” said a brief statement from the club, which initially did not comment on the dismissal. Fotheringham’s assistant Kenny Miller was also relieved of his duties. In the upcoming duel with Wigan Athletic, Narcís Pèlach from the coaching staff will be on the sidelines on an interim basis.
