Bournemouth have today announced the sacking of manager Jason Tindall.
The Cherries have lost four on the bounce in the Championship, resulting in a slide down the table.
Having only suffered relegation last season, Bournemouth are clearly keen to return to the top flight at the first time of asking.
And the decision has been taken to relieve Tindall of his duties before it is too late.
"AFC Bournemouth have today parted company with manager Jason Tindall," a club statement read on Wednesday morning.
"It is a decision which has not been taken lightly, given Jason’s outstanding commitment to the club as a player, assistant manager and manager.
"However, recent performances and results have fallen well below the board’s expectations.
"We feel a change is needed now in order to give the club the best possible chance of achieving the goals that were clearly set out last summer.
"We would like to place on record our thanks to Jason for his services to AFC Bournemouth over the past 22 years.
"He is someone who is fondly thought of throughout the club, having played an important role in rescuing the club from its darkest days and taking it on the greatest journey it has ever had.
"Jason will always be welcome at Vitality Stadium and we would like to wish him every success for the future."
Tindall only landed the top job on the south coast over the summer, stepping up from the position of assistant manager after Eddie Howe's departure.
Bournemouth suffered another defeat on Tuesday, losing to Sheffield Wednesday thanks to a late winner from Jordan Rhodes.
After the clash, Tindall said: "The first half highlighted that there are a lot of players lacking a lot of confidence and a lot of belief. We had a lot of players who looked like they are going through a bad moment with their decision-making.
"The second half was a much better performance.
"I have identified the type of characters we needed to bring in during this difficult time. The additions of Ben Pearson and Shane Long in the transfer window, with their characters and experience, will help us a lot.
"We have a lot of players who are very young and very inexperienced. Their leadership and quality will certainly help."
