Chairman Dejphon Chansiri told “The performances and results have not been of the level expected since Tony Pulis was appointed. There are also other issues which have had a bearing on this decision. On the pitch, seven points from a possible 30 is not acceptable. It is vital we maintain our Championship status and I feel I must make a change now with over half of the season remaining to give us the best possible chance of doing so.”
