Richie Barker has been sacked as manager of Portsmouth FC after only 20 games in charge.

The 38-year-old won only four of his games in charge of the League Two side which sits two points above the relegation zone.

Pompey take on Newport this Saturday. Academy boss Andy Awford is expected to be placed in temporary charge.
