Bryan Gunn has been sacked as Norwich manager less than a week into the new Coca-Cola League One season.

The Canaries, relegated from the Championship last term, crashed to a humiliating 7-1 defeat at home to Colchester in their opening fixture last Saturday.

A 4-0 midweek Carling Cup win at Yeovil in midweek could not save Gunn, a legendary figure at Carrow Road from his days as a goalkeeper, and assistant manager Ian Butterworth has been placed in temporary charge for Saturday's trip to Exeter.
