The loss was Cardiff's eighth straight defeat in the Championship and now leaves them staring relegation.

The disastrous run of results has now seen McCarthy pay the ultimate price, with Cardiff sacking him in the wake of the Middlesbrough defeat on Saturday, October 23.

In a statement by the Bluebirds, the club announced the exit of McCarthy's assistant Terry Connor, revealing the decision was reached by mutual consent.

“Cardiff City Football Club can confirm first team manager Mick McCarthy and assistant manager Terry Connor have left the club by mutual agreement and with immediate effect," the statement said.
“We would like to thank Mick and Terry for their efforts during their time with the Bluebirds and wish them all the best for the future," the club added.

Cardiff's U23 manager Steve Morrison is now due to take over on a temporary basis assisted by Tom Ramasut.

The two will now take charge in Cardiff's next three matches against Stoke City QPR and Huddersfield Town.

SunSport reports McCarthy had a successful start to life at Cardiff City Stadium when he was appointed in January as he was unbeaten in his first 11 matches in charge.

However, he has been unable to arrest the club's recent poor run of results, with the defeat to Middlesbrough their 10th in 11 outings.
