LONDON - Bolton Wanderers sacked manager Gary Megson, left, yesterday after a 2-2 home draw with Hull City that left the club in the Premier League relegation zone.

"Gary Megson has been relieved of his duties," the club said. "Assistant manager Chris Evans and first-team coach Steve Wigley will take charge."

The team were booed off after Tuesday's game when they lost a 2-0 lead against fellow strugglers Hull even though the draw extended their unbeaten run to four games. - Reuters
