MK Dons have parted company with manager Dan Micciche by mutual consent, the Sky Bet League One strugglers have announced.

Former academy coach and England Under-16 manager Micciche, 38, was only appointed in January, during which time the club have slipped to six points from safety.<

Keith Millen, who was Micciche's assistant, will take charge of the Dons for the remaining three games of the season.

A club statement read: "The mutual decision, made with a heavy heart, comes after discussions between the chairman and Micciche."

This is a club that means a lot to me and my family and I put every ounce of effort into the job. Unfortunately, the fine margins have gone against us and it hasn't worked out in the way we would have wanted.

I am extremely grateful to the board, staff, players and fans for their tremendous support during my time here. It has been an honour to manage this football club and I would love nothing more than to see it get back to where it belongs.

– Dan Micciche

Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott has been nominated for the EFL League One player of the month award for March.

The in-form forward hit five goals in as many matches last month - including a last minute winner versus Bury and an equaliser at Rotherham.

He's helped guide his team back into the Play-Off places. He's up against Fleetwood's Alex Cairns, Chey Dunkley of Wigan and former Ipswich Town player Brett Pitman who's now with Portsmouth.

Staying in League One, MK Dons boss Dan Micciche has been nominated for the manager of the month award. He's up against Wigan's Paul Cook, Fleetwood's John Sheridan and Keith Hill of Rochdale.

Both awards are announced on Friday.
