"Pat Lyons and Craig Short, who were support staff under Wassall at under-21 level, will work alongside the rest of the senior coaching staff for the closing months of the campaign," the club confirmed on the official website.

"Kevin Phillips (assistant coach) and Pascal Zuberbuhler (goalkeeping coach) will remain on the coaching team to provide support to Wassall."

Rory Delap succeeds Wassall as under-21s coach for their remaining six games this season, Justin Walker will take charge of the under-18s, while h ead of academy operations John Barton will oversee the day-to-day running of the academy.

Wassall will take charge of his first game against MK Dons at the iPro Stadium on Saturday.
