Millwall Sack Manager Steve Lomas After 4-0 Boxing Day Defeat to Watford

Millwall Football Club have announced the sacking of manager Steve Lomas, just hours after the club were beaten 4-0 against Watford on Boxing Day.

The defeat sees Millwall drop to 20th position in the Championship table.

“Coach Neil Harris and Academy Director Scott Fitzgerald, both former players at The Den, will take temporary charge of the team for the trip to Doncaster on Sunday, and until a new permanent manager is appointed.

“Lions CEO Andy Ambler said: ‘We are very disappointed that it hasn’t worked out for Steve. He has been thoroughly professional in his approach to the job during his short period with the club and remains a very promising young manager.

‘However, the board feels that it is in the best interests of Millwall that we make the change at this time and the search for a successor to Steve begins immediately. We thank Steve for his efforts and wish him the very best for the future.'”

Millwall’s next match is against Doncaster Rovers on Sunday.

    Excellent news. About 10 games too late and should never have been appointed in the first place. To be fair he was left a complete mess by Jackett but then compounded it by signing some of the worst dross to ever play for Millwall. As a result, nobody is going to want the job. Holloway won’t go there. We are better off going down and then rebuilding the club from top to bottom. Scouting and youth system used to be strengths. Now the club is full of journeymen rubbish playing kick and rush.
