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.
