It was a case of one in and one out in League One this week, with Charlton Athletic sacking Michael Appleton on Tuesday while Shrewsbury Town reappointed Paul Hurst on Wednesday.

Charlton lost 3-2 at home to Northampton Town in midweek, their fourth defeat in five matches, and former Blackburn Rovers boss Appleton lost his job within 30 minutes of the match ending.

Replacing Dean Holden in September, Appleton won just eight of his 23 matches at the Valley and was not a popular figure amongst Addicks supporters by the end.

Sat in 16th, they are just four points clear of Reading and are looking for their third manager of the season.

Shrewsbury Town removed Matt Taylor on Sunday after his seventh defeat in eight matches.

On Wednesday, they brought Hurst back to the club for his second stint in charge.

He took Salop into the League One play-off final during his first run but departed to join Ipswich Town.

Last at Grimsby Town, he returns looking to keep Shrewsbury in the third tier as they currently sit just one place above the Royals on the right side of the relegation zone.
