Championship side Swansea City have sacked manager Michael Duff just three games after their 3-2 defeat to Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

The Swans took an early lead at IP1 through Jay Fulton, but goals from Jack Taylor, Conor Chaplin and George Hirst saw the Blues earn all three points despite Jamal Lowe's stoppage-time consolation.

Duff was left beaten League One play-off finalists Barnsley to join the Swans back in June, replacing Russell Martin, who moved to Southampton a few weeks earlier.

Pressure built on the former Cheltenham Town boss after a winless start, with a terrible performance in a 2-0 defeat away at arch-rivals Cardiff City leading to many supporters calling for his departure.

He turned it around, with a four-game winning streak lifting them out of the bottom three at the start of October. However, they were unable to maintain it, dropping down to 18th after Saturday's 1-1 draw to Huddersfield Town.

That proved to be the stray that broke the camel's back, with Swansea opting to remove him ahead of their upcoming trip to Rotherham United, who are the only other manager-less side in the division.

It means that Ipswich will face a new manager when they travel to South Wales on February 17th, 2024.
