Oldham have confirmed they have parted company with Head Coach Matt Diskin after 18 months in charge.
Diskin was appointed ahead of the 2020 season, not long after finishing his stint in charge with Batley Bulldogs.
Oldham won one of their first five matches in 2020 before the season was voided because of the pandemic. In 2021, the club currently lie second bottom, having won two of their 11 games so far.
Diskin’s last game in charge was an 18-4 defeat against Dewsbury Rams on Sunday. Brendan Sheridan will take temporary charge until a successor is appointed.
Reacting to the news, chairman Chris Hamilton said: “This is never something I like doing and in this case I feel sorry for Matt because the mistakes we are making are not down to coaching.
“They are costing us games, however, and we need to do something to get us into the dog-fight to stay in the Championship.
“Matt has worked very hard during his time at the club, most of which has been during Covid, which has been very difficult for a number of reasons.”
