Huddersfield are on the brink of sacking Danny Cowley as manager, Football Insider can reveal.
The hierarchy of the Championship strugglers are weighing up the shock move of ending his reign as manager after just nine months.
A Huddersfield source has told Football Insider that Cowley and his assistant brother Nicky are “under serious pressure” to keep their jobs.
They may be given one more match in charge but if they are, Wednesday’s 6pm showdown at Birmingham City is likely to be make-or-break.
Huddersfield chiefs are considering pulling the plug after the club dropped into the Championship relegation zone yesterday following their 3-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest.
The board believe drastic action may be needed to avoid suffering calamitous back-to-back relegations.
With seven matches remaining, the Terriers are 22nd in the Championship table although they are level on points with Hull City, one place outside of the drop zone.
Cowley reacted strongly to Town’s defeat yesterday and claimed the club would only get relegated “over my dead body”.
The Cowleys were lured from Lincoln City last September to replace Jan Siewert, who was sacked on 16 August after the Terriers made a poor start to the new Championship season as well as crashing out of the Carabao Cup.
The brothers had an outstanding record at Lincoln, who twice got promoted in their three-and-a-half year reign as well as achieved unprecedented cup success.
