The English League One club Barnsley is hanging by a thread right now as they are at the bottom of the league with only a few points keeping them barely alive and above the relegation zone.
To make matters worse, Danny Wilson and his assistant Chris Hutchings were both sacked from their managerial position in the club. The team has only managed on winning 10 matches out of their 29 matches of which they have played so far and this negative streak of results was the main reason on why Wilson and Hutchings were sacked.
The Chief Executive of Barnsley, Ben Mansford announced details concerning the recent sacking as he said:

Chester had a few moments to score with one of the closest chances arriving at the 22nd minute when Craig Mahon blasted down the left wing and he launched a shot that was tipped away from danger by the goal-keeper Ross Turnbull.
