Following Saturday's home defeat to Huddersfield Town, Walsall have been relegated to League Two and have today sacked manager Kevan Broadhurst.

The Saddlers lie bottom of League One after a run of poor results culminating in Saturday's 3-1 defeat that consigned them to their second relegation in three seasons.

Mark Kinsella will take charge of first team affairs for the remaining two games of the season against Gillingham on Saturday and the final game of the season at home to Barnsley on May 6.

Walsall Chairman Roy Whalley told BBC WM's Adrian Goldberg:

"Kevan Broadhurst has been released from his position as team manager, with immediate effect. That means that we will now start the process of seeking to appoint a team manager to prepare for and lead us into the 2006/7 campaign.

"He came into a difficult situation and we all acknowledge here that Kevan worked very hard to try and make it happen for us but unfortunately it didn't work out and the board have taken the view that we need to look in a different direction for next season."
