Burton Albion have sacked manager Dino Maamria after the Brewers lost for the fifth time in a six-game winless run in League One.

It leaves them just two places and four points above the relegation zone after 20 matches.

The defeat ended a week in which Burton beat Wrexham to advance to the last 16 of the EFL Trophy.

Maamria's dismissal "with immediate effect" was announced in a 13-word club statement attributed to chairman Ben Robinson.

The Tunisian had been in charge for 15 months at the Pirelli Stadium, having stepped up from assistant to replace Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink when Burton were bottom of the third tier last season.

Despite spending just three days outside the drop zone before February, he managed to keep Burton up with three games to spare.
