Wigan have parted company with manager Chris Hutchings.

Assistant manager Frank Barlow will take charge of the first team on a caretaker basis for the Barclays Premier League trip to Tottenham on Sunday.

In a statement, chairman Dave Whelan said: "This has been a very difficult decision for me and the board to make - but I felt we had to act in the best interests of the football club and its long-term future."
