Andy Crosby sacked after less than a year in charge after one win in eight

Port Vale decided to sack Andy Crosby on Monday after losing 3-0 to fellow League One strugglers Fleetwood Town on Saturday to see them sit in 20th in the table.

Vale are two points above the League One drop-zone but have two games in hand which are currently working as a cushion against relegation.

Crosby led the team to winning 5 of their first 7 games in League One this season to go up to 2nd in the table but they've since fallen off in terms of form to sink down to the bottom five in the league.
