In a statement on the club website chairman Darragh MacAnthony said he was "very disappointed" with recent results.

I’m personally very disappointed in our current league position, the performances from our playing squad and the fact that we have dropped way below our own standards that we set out at as a football club. There is plenty of young and experienced talent in this squad and with 14 games left in the season, I have personal expectations that our players will all lift their performance levels to match the incredible passionate performance and display by nearly 2000 Posh fans today when we were 3-0 down at Stadium MK.

– Darragh MacAnthony, Chairman

Dave Robertson will be in charge until a new manager is appointed.

The Muslim snooker star was criticised for sporting an ISIS badge on his waistcoat during his match with Ronnie O'Sullivan on Monday night. A number of people took to social media thinking Mr McLeod was showing support for the jihadist militant group, Islamic State or 'Isis'.

Mr McLeod was forced to deny the accusations, explaining on Twitter that he is sponsored by accountant company ISIS Business Solutions and therefore wears their logo.

"ISIS Business Solutions are Accountants and Tax Advisors to Small to Medium sized enterprises and Entrepreneurs. We have looked after the financial affairs of Mr McLeod for the last 12 years.

"We have also sponsored Mr McLeod during that time and he carries our Logo on his waistcoat in accordance with the guidelines of the WPBSA. My original inspiration for the name came from the river ISIS.

"Quite clearly the association with the Acronym ISIS associated with the troubles in the Middle East are Media generated and are an unfortunate coincidence with our trading name.

"Our ethos is that Trade transcends politics and creates understanding and respect between peoples of the world."

– Mark Hollyman, Managing Partner, Isis
