Nigel Pearson has been sacked as manager of Watford, with just two matches remaining of their Premier League season.

The relegation-threatened side moved quickly to dismiss a fourth head coach of the season following a disappointing 3-1 defeat at West Ham, leaving them three points clear of safety.

Pearson exits the club along with his assistant Craig Shakespeare after a reported row with owner Gino Pozzo.
