Paul Dickov has resigned as manager of Oldham after Saturday's 3-1 npower League One defeat to Walsall.

The 40-year-old former Scotland international has been under pressure at Boundary Park for some time following poor form, but earned a stay of execution after masterminding a famous FA Cup victory over Liverpool last weekend.

However, eight defeats out of nine games in League One has left the Latics hovering above the relegation zone and Dickov has decided to quit after two and a half years in the job.
