The former England caretaker boss took over in June 2018, presiding over an 18th-place finish in the National League last season. The 66-year-old, who played four times for England and managed Leicester City in the Premier League, leaves the Daggers with the team in that same position in the table, two points above the drop zone.

A club statement explains: “The club would firstly like to place on record its sincere thanks to Peter, who stepped in as manager in June 2018 when the club was under extreme pressure, and with his extensive expertise was able to assemble and guide the team. With that said, a change is required based on recent results in order to both enable sufficient time for the board to select a replacement, and for the new manager to start and achieve the aspirations set forth by our investment group.”

Terry Harris and Jody Brown will take charge of the team until a new manager is appointed.
