Tranmere Rovers to focus on fight for survival after Micky Adams' exit

19 April 2015

Manager Micky Adams has left Tranmere Rovers by mutual consent with just two games of the season left.

Rovers suffered a fourth consecutive defeat on Saturday, leaving them bottom of Sky Bet League 2 and two points adrift of safety.

Adams failed to show for his post-match press conference after the 3-0 loss to Oxford United while supporters demonstrated outside the ground, calling for the manager to leave.

Those fans got their wish on Sunday, with the club confirming the news in a statement on their official website.

It read: "We thank Micky for his work at Tranmere Rovers having taken over the club at a difficult time and wish him all the best for the future.

"The focus of the first team and everybody at the club is now on the fight to the finish with a game at Plymouth Argyle on Saturday 25th April when three points could lift them above both Hartlepool United and Cheltenham Town."

Adams joined the club in October, with Rovers sitting bottom of the table after 12 games.

The former Leicester manager, who sat in the stands for the 2-0 defeat to Oxford in October before officially taking charge, lost just two of his first 13 games at the helm.

Tranmere reached the third round of the FA Cup, where they were beaten 6-2 by Premier League side Swansea City, but a five-match unbeaten run in the league around the game saw them end January in 17th.

But since then, Adams has overseen just two wins in 17 games and a run of four games without even scoring.

Assistant manager Alan Rogers and academy manager Shaun Garnett will take temporary charge of first-team affairs.

Tranmere have not been outside The Football League since joining in 1921.
