The stats, compiled by BBC Sport, crunch a series of key numbers from the last 10 years. The list ranks the managers with the lowest points per game rate, with McCarthy coming sixth worst during his time at Wolves, and Lambert ninth, during his tenure at Norwich City, Aston Villa and Stoke.

Lambert managed the Canaries in the early years of the decade, with the Scot leading Norwich to a 12th placed finish before leaving to join Aston Villa in 2012. He has a rating of 1.045 points per game.

McCarthy has a 0.988 points per game rate during his time with Wolves.

The table only includes managers who have been at the helm of a club for an entire season, with ex-Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner rooted to the bottom, with Avram Grant with the second least successful record, during his spells with Portsmouth and West Ham.
