Mark Robins has left his role as Huddersfield Town manager after one game of the Sky Bet Championship season, the club have announced.

The 44-year-old took charge in February 2013, avoiding relegation that year before leading them to a 17th-place finish last season.

However, a 4-0 loss at home to Bournemouth on the opening day of the campaign led to Robins and his players being jeered by fans.
