Bonnyrigg Rose have sacked boss Robbie Horn amid fears of relegation after a nine-game winless run and replaced him with Cowdenbeath's Calum Elliot.

The Rosey Posey have just one league win in 2024 and are now just two points off the relegation play-off spot after Saturday's 2-0 loss to Dumbarton.

They now lie eighth on goal difference in Scottish League 2 above Stranraer, who they face next weekend.

And they are just two points above improving bottom side Clyde.

The Bully Wee, who won 2-1 away to Bonnyrigg last weekend, were 10 points adrift just over a month ago but have won four of their last seven under their new manager, Ian McCall.

Horn, in his second spell as Bonnyrigg boss, took over in 2018 and guided them through two promotions from the East of Scotland League into the Scottish Professional Football League for the first time, finishing eighth last season.

His assistant, former Bonyrigg player David Burrell, has also left the club.

"Bonnyrigg Rose thank both Robbie and David for their commitment and service to the club and wish them all the best for the future," the club said in a statement.
