Alan Irvine has parted company with Sheffield Wednesday after just 13 months in charge.

He is reported to have held crisis talks with chairman Milan Manderic in the wake of the 5-3 defeat to Peterborough on Tuesday night.

That defeat meant the side are now on a run of six league games without a win.

Irvine had successfully taken the League One outfit to the 5th round of the FA Cup, where they face a trip to Birmingham in two weeks time, but has failed to win a league game since Manderic had his takeover confirmed in December.

Sheffield Wednesday lie seven points away from the play-off places and but just five points above the relegation zone.

A statement from the club is expected later today.
