John Collins has been installed as the immediate favourite to take charge at Fulham following the sacking of manager Lawrie Sanchez on Friday morning.

Former Northern Ireland boss Sanchez has paid the price for the club´s poor start in the Barclays Premier League this season when the Cottagers have won just twice in the league and are 18th, with 13 points from 17 games.

A club statement read: "Following a run of disappointing results, the club is languishing in the relegation zone of the Premier League table - and losing its Premier League status is a proposition that simply can not be contemplated at this stage in the club´s ongoing development. The club is confident that it will find the right replacement to increase its chances of remaining in the Premier League, which is of vital importance."
