League One: Curle sacked at Notts County, while Oldhamss' Dickov resigns

There were two managerial departures in League One yesterday as Paul Dickov resigned as manager of Oldham and Keith Curle was sacked as Notts County manager. Dickov's side lost 3-1 to defeat to Walsall on Saturday. He had been under pressure at Boundary Park for some time following poor form, but earned a stay of execution after masterminding a famous FA Cup victory over Liverpool last weekend.

Curle was dismissed after less than a year in charge of County. The Magpies sit 10th in League One, but lost 2-1 to bottom of the league Hartlepool on Saturday and have won just two of their last 11 games in all competitions.
