JOHANNESBIRG - Tony Pulis has been sacked as West Bromwich Albion manager with assistant coach Gary Megson being named as caretaker boss, the Premier League club said on Monday.

West Brom are one point above the relegation zone in 17th position with 10 points from 12 league games, recording six losses in the process.

"We are in a results business and over the back end of last season and this season to date, ours have been very disappointing.

West Brom ended last season in 10th position with one win in their last eight league games.
