Milton Keynes Dons have tonight announced that they have parted ways with manager Paul Tisdale by mutual consent.
The decision comes after the Dons picked up just one point out of a possible 27 in their past nine matches, with just four victories in their first 16 games of the 2019/20 League One campaign altogether.
Assistant Manager Matt Oakley and first-team coaches Danny Butterfield and Mel Gwinnett will also leave the club along with Tisdale, who helped guide the club to automatic promotion from League Two in his first, and only, full season in charge.
Chairman Pete Winkelman said: "I’d like to place on record my appreciation of what Paul was able to achieve for us, winning promotion from Sky Bet League Two at the first attempt and leaving us in a better position than when he found it."
The club added: "The Club would like to thank Paul, Matt, Danny and Mel for their dedication, commitment and tireless work ethic. They brought success back to Stadium MK in 2018/19 and, for that, the Club will always be grateful. Everyone at MK Dons wishes them every success in the future."
