Paul Trollope: Set for the chop at Cardiff

Cardiff City are ready to end head coach Paul Trollope’s reign in charge after their poor start to the season, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Burton was Cardiff’s sixth defeat in their last seven Championship contests to leave the Bluebirds second from bottom of the table.

Former Wales coach Trollope has won just two Championship games since taking control at the Cardiff City Stadium this summer and their opening points tally is their worst in 12 years

Last weekend’s win over basement boys Rotherham United eased the pressure growing on Trollope but two defeats in the four days to Derby County and Burton appears to be the final straw for Trollope with fans turning on him.

Cardiff City chairman Vincent Tan is reluctant to part company with Trollope but patience is understood to have worn thin with amid fears if they do not make a change they could find themselves involved in a relegation battle this season.
