Barnsley have terminated the contract for former Fleetwood Town manager Micky Mellon.

The Oakwell club , currently bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, three points from safety with 11 games remaining, and have won only three of their 15 league matches since Danny Wilson took charge.

Wilson had kept Mellon on as his assistant manager, the former Blackpool and Burnley midfielder having held the same role under David Flitcroft.

Goalkeeping coach Ian Willcock was also let go.

A club statement read: “Barnsley Football Club has terminated the employment of assistant manager Micky Mellon and goalkeeping coach Ian Willcock with immediate effect.

“The club would like to place on record its thanks to both Micky and Ian for their service and wish them all the best for the future.”
