Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has been sacked after a run of poor form that culminated with Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Cardiff City.
Assistant Head Coach Dean Holden will take over immediately in a caretaker capacity as the Robins look to appoint a successor.
City chief executive Mark Ashton said: “We recognise the huge amount of work that Lee has put in over the last four-and-a-half years to move this club forward and we thank him for all his efforts.

“There have been some special moments over those years and Lee has played a significant part in them.
“However, success in football is ultimately judged by results and league position and the Board believes that a change of management is needed now for Bristol City.”
