Manager exits after first game of season

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.

After a meeting with the club's board on Saturday, it was mutually agreed Robins would step down.

Training yesterday was taken by assistant manager Steve Thompson.
