Carlisle United have sacked manager Steven Pressley after 10 months in charge of the League Two club.
The Cumbrians are 19th in the fourth tier, but have won two of their past three games in all competitions.
The 46-year-old leaves after Tuesday's 3-1 Leasing.com Trophy loss at Morecambe, having beaten non-league Dulwich Hamlet in the FA Cup on Friday and Macclesfield Town the week before.
The club's remaining coaches will take charge the first team temporarily.
"Steven has given his all and has worked tirelessly since the day he joined us," chairman Andrew Jenkins said in a statement.
"We understand the challenges and have supported him throughout, but we haven't seen the evidence of progress we expected or needed to see.
"This is not something we can allow to continue, so sadly it is time to change, move on and look forward."
